I just had to post this it reflects my feelings so well:
YESTERDAY and WINTER
It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on
my new life with my mate. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and
I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all...and I
have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams.
But, here it is...the winter of my life and it catches me by
surprise. How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where
did my babies go? And where did my youth go?
I remember well... seeing older people through the years and
thinking that those older people were years away from me and that
winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what
it would be like.
But, here it is...
My age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we
used to see and never thought we'd be. Each day now, I find that just
g etting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a
treat anymore...it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will...I
just fall asleep where I sit!
And so, now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for
all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and
do things. But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and
I'm not sure how long it will last, this I know, that when it's
over...its over! Yes, I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't
done and things I should have done. But indeed, there are many things
I'm happy to have done. Its all in a lifetime...
So, if you're not in your winter yet ... let me remind you, that it
will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to
accomplish in your life, please do it quickly! Life goes by quickly.
So, do what you can today, because you can never be sure whether this
is your winter or not! You h a ve no promise that you will see all the
seasons of your life ... so, live for God today, and say all the
things that you want your loved ones to remember.
"Life is God's gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift
to God, and those who come after. Make it a fantastic one." LIVE IT
