Sunday Verses

devotional on not taking life for granted
Happy Sunday! Yesterday, my son would have been eighteen. I have learned so many lessons through his death--probably enough to fill a year's worth of Sunday verses. The one that I tend to forget, but thought about this past week, is that life can change instantly. It's something we have all heard, but what does it mean for our every day living? It means we should enjoy life, practice gratitude daily, forgive that person, delight in small joys, seek beauty, share kindness. Life is hard and constantly changing, but let's not take for granted the gift that it is.

  1. Such a hard thing to go through. You have done it with such grace & not let it make you bitter or angry. Maybe you were angry for a time, but you've come away seeming very appreciative & blessed.

  2. Happy Heavenly Birthday to your son. My daughter celebrated her heavenly birthday last month. I don't recall ever reading or hearing the verse you posted. I am going to copy it into my prayer journal. Your post is lovely and very, very meaningful.

    1. Aw, I am sorry for the loss of your daughter. It is the message version of the verse.
