Reminder


Some days, I obsess over everything else.

I look at the college credits needed to earn my degree and I sigh. I check the bank account and worry. I browse the racks of clothes and shelves of things at the store and I'm convinced I am less without them. Sometimes, I look at everything and everyone else.

She reminds me that it's all so inconsequential.

There are only a few things in this life that will matter at the end. The hands I will hold as I slip away are among the most important.

Because, in my final hours, I will be thinking only of God. Of Millie. And of Sky.
And of how I lived my life to be a part of theirs.

Oh my word, wait until you see my post for Friday! Similarities here for SURE, wow!

"thinking I'm less without them" totally can relate, I feel that way too about clothing or other things I don't have or talents I don't have. Isn't it hard sometimes?! I've come a long way, but still can really really suffer from this...especially since I started blogging. I seriously almost stopped blogging b/c it got so bad, I thought I had NOTHING to offer compared to all you amazing bloggers!
Satan is SO good AT lying!!!

I needed this reminder. It can be so easy to get caught up in bank accounts and in what I "don't have" (pssh...who even cares?!) and in little, inconsequential things. But you are so right. There are only a few, very important things that truly matter.

Always a good reminder. Thank you. It's so hard in the day to day events of life to stop and remember what's really important. You're right, the love of/for family and friends, that's what really matters.

YES! So true. [sorry, this is a little late..getting to a computer has been difficult lately].
People don't realize how much isn't going with them after they die. They aren't even taking their bodies!
Relationships matter! People matter! Ah! You bless my heart. :)
