Last day on earth...


Isn't it funny that you hear a song so many times and you KNOW the words but then one day you READ the words and you go "OOOH". Well, that happened tonight with one other song from Steven Curtis Chapman (I love his music). There is a song called "Last day on earth". And for some reason when I was reading it tonight it made me go, "yeah, what would I do if I knew this would be my last day on earth?" I don't really know. I guess I would keep my family close and tell them all the things I have been afraid to tell them. I would pray a lot I think. I think it would be very hard for me. Well, look at the words of this song and let me know what you would do on your
"last day on earth".
{Matthew 25:21; James 4:14}

I pull over to the side of the road and I
Watch the cars pass me by
The headlights and the black limousines tell me
Someone is saying goodbye
I bow my head and I whisper a prayer, "Father,
Comfort their broken hearts"
And as I drive away there's a thought that
I cannot escape, no I, cannot escape this thought
I can't get away
Oh, if this should be my last day on this earth
How then shall I live
Oh, if this should be the last day that I have
Before I breathe the air of Heaven
Let me live it with abandon to
The only thing that remains
After my last day here on earth
If this should be my last day here on earth
If this should be my last, last day here on earth
And if tomorrow comes to find me
Looking in the face of Jesus
Will I hear Him say the words "well done"?
If this should be my last day here on earth
If this should be my last, my last day here on earth
'Cause this could be my last, this could be my last
This could be my last day

Thank you for stopping by my blog, you have a beautiful family as well. I have family in Charleston, I don't know how far away that is from you. South Carolina is absolutely beautiful.

My desire has been to live my days more like they are my last. The last oppotunity to tell that neighbor Jesus loves them so much. To show my husband and children how much I love them, but more importantly to be Christ's hands feet and unconditional love to them. To be consistently obedient to the leading of the Holy Spirit, and to strive to know His purpose for all my daily activities. Maybe when I get all this accopmplished it will be my last day on earth...(:
See ya soon,
Mari
