My friend passed away this weekend...the one I mentioned a few weeks ago. She found out about the cancer almost exactly a month ago. It's heartbreaking to lose someone, but I can take comfort in the fact that I know that she is in heaven and she is now pain free.
Her funeral is tomorrow and I've just been reflecting on life and living lately. We only get this one life. I know we say it all the time, but really, we never know when it will be our last day here. I want to make each day count, to grasp all the little moments of every single day, to make sure that all of my family and friends know how much I love them, to share God's love with every person that I come into contact with. It's so easy for this to become real when something bad happens, but I have really been praying for this to be present in my mind every single day. There is just no point in wasting one single day that we have been given.
But I don't fear death...none of us should if we are confident of where we are going. It's when we will be reunited with our Father in heaven and all suffering and pain is gone. It's a real "fairy tale." A "happily ever after." Oh, heaven, how good you are going to be.
I hope that all of y'all know Jesus and that I'll be seeing y'all in heaven one day. I consider each of y'all a friend, even if we will never meet in real life. We have all been placed in each other's lives for a reason. We share real emotions and feelings together. We share life together. I just want y'all to know that I am here for y'all if y'all ever need anything...to talk, a prayer, anything.
