I am getting on in years, most are younger and therefore referred to as “children or child”, (no disrespect intended). I was also fat until I began using sparkpeople and now, thank God, I am just pleasingly plump.
Other than my age, which is always a warning in itself, I did not know I was in imminent danger of death. I had a heart attack, went to doctor and while in his office began another one, resulting in a trip to hospital via the rescue squad, tests, xrays, trip to another hospital via ambulance and by-pass surgery by a wonderful cardiac team headed by Dr. Katz of the Bon Secour Hospitals in Richmond. It has been a lonnnng recovery, of which I am still involved but, still alive, thanks to my dear Lord!
What I now know:
I know the end comes fast, there is no time for negotiating with God, so, one best be right.
I know only God and loved ones mean anything at the end. Believe me, I did not think of IRAs, houses or “things” in those fleeting minutes.
I know to encourage others and help where I can each day and not say “I will do it tomorrow” because tomorrow may not come.
I know to appreciate the day – sunrise, birds, flowers, rain, a tender touch, a kind word, great food, lovely music and beautiful art … to again have that child-like wonder and ask “how and why”.
I know it is useless to worry. Hey, worry is what got me in that mess.
I will be posting inspirational items which will be found in “Vespers”, some signature tags, screensavers, calendars, scrap sheets for non-digital crafters and various and sundry other things. All will be available for you to use if you choose, just right click and copy. I will only use material I am allowed to use.
I do thank you for visiting and hope you find something that will encourage and uplift in these difficult times. Just remember, God loves you!
