Why is it I do not live my life intentionally each and every day?
In my day to day life in Fort Worth, unless I have volunteer or babysitting commitments, I fiddle away LOTS of time. Perhaps this comes from the place of believing I have plenty of time left. There is no sense of all this coming to a halt at some point. I have known those who had terminal illnesses, and still did not acknowledge the bell will toll. We all live our lives as if they will never end.
We stick our heads in the sand and deny that life will end here on this Earth. I love the statement, "We don't get out of this alive." There you have it--the stark truth of the matter!
Why then don't we live with intent? Why do we avoid the significant and instead settle for the mundane? The visit here has reminded me--the clock is ticking--there is a limited time to build a legacy. I pray part of my legacy is loving you well. Time to intentionally become intent in pursuing that which is eternal.
