Something to think about Sundays

Do the people around you know that you love and care for them?

It was a little over one year ago when a tragic accident took the life of someone our family cared about and loved deeply. She was a wife, mother, daughter, a teacher, she was exuberant, she was funny and loving. She was too young.

It is written:

Matthew 24: 36, 42-44

"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

"Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."

If you are like me, after accidents and tragedies strike, you remind yourself to show and tell your loved ones how much you do love and appreciate them more often. You try to live your life a little fuller and a little more righteous. We hug a little more and a little tighter not wanting to let go.

However, as time goes on and the shock and pain begin to fade so can those thoughts. But the Lord is Great. He has a master plan. We do not know when he will call us or someone close to us to come home to him. So today, as I reflect on an amazing women who is sure to be making people laugh in heaven.

I am asking you one question:

Do the people around you know that you love and care for them?

and giving you one challenge:

Love them and show them everyday.
