A Sunday Thought

 

I have hardly ever walked in a cemetery that I didn’t think about all the hopes and dreams and lives lived by the people buried there.  And I’ve sometimes thought about how they might have lived their lives differently if they had known when they were going to die. 

Life is short and unpredictable.  We should live today as if it is our last day.

May you have a blessed Sunday and may you live it and each of your days fully, and for and in Him.

    Very nice. Cemetaries are wonderful history lessons. I know several of my friends think they are scary but on the contrary. Thanks for the great Sunday thought.

    I think if it was my last day I wouldn’t stress so much about little things. I’d really give them over to God knowing that I can’t make everything perfect in one day. And, really. I can’t make everything perfect in a lifetime of days either, can I?

    Amy — I find cemetaries inspirational. A reminder than our livespans are just a twinkling of the eye, in God’s plan.

    Beth — You’re right. If we knew it was our last day, we would definitely have different priorities, wouldn’t we.

    Sandy,

    I,too, think about the lives of those buried at the cemeteries as I walk through them. ….the many generations…the babies and young children that died because we didn’t have the medication and know how to save them.

    Is this picture St. Peter’s Lutheran Cemetery @ Maysville and State? It looks like it.

  5. Sandra says:

    Yes, Barb, it is. I took this from the car while stopped at the stop light at that corner. Cropping made it a pretty picture, I thought. Although, when I made it the wallpaper on our computer, Hubby said he thought it felt strange to use a cemetery for that!

  6. I have always tried to live every day like it’s my last when it comes to relationships. Great post.

    HPKT — It wasn’t intentional, but maybe reading about the recent death of your friends’ son, brought the words for this post come to my mind. I know you and your husband must be a great comfort to them. May the healing begin soon for all of you.
