Because I know life is a gift,
Because I see the fragility of life every day,
Because time is passing by quickly,
Because I don’t want to waste a moment,
Because I want to live in health and wholeness,
Because I want to do only what matters,
Because I want to live strong,
I will love God with all of my being, refusing to give less than all.
I will be purposeful, refusing to live without meaning,
I will be grateful for each moment, refusing to be thankless,
I will think the best, refusing to consider the worst,
I will believe in possibilities, refusing to be persuaded that something is impossible,
I will be understanding, refusing to take offense,
I will find the new beginning, refusing to be lost in an ending,
I will live simply, refusing to be weighed down by the stuff of life,
I will have a great attitude, refusing to be negative,
I will choose peace, refusing to worry,
I will celebrate the life I’ve received, refusing to be passionless and unresponsive,
And. I will be one of the voices in the wilderness of this world, revealing the Truth of Life.
That’s WHY I work and struggle so hard, depending on Christ’s mighty power that works within me (Colossians 1:29, NLT).
Because answers a lot of whys–Kerrie
One of my most favorite things to do is hang out with these two cuties on my porch–just because.
