To A Keeper!
One day, someone's mother died.
And on that clear cold morning, in the warmth of her bedroom, the daughter was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't any more.
No more hugs, no more lucky moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute."
Sometimes, what we care about the most goes away . . never to return before we can say good-bye, and say "I Love You."
So while we have it . . it's best we love it . . .. and care for it and fix it when it's broken . . and take good care of it when it's sick.
This is true for marriage .... and friendships .
And children with bad report cards; And dogs with bad hips; And aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we cherish them
Some things we keep -- like a best friend who moved away or a classmate we grew up with. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.
Life is important, and so are the people we know . . and so we keep them close!
I received this from someone who thought I was a 'KEEPER'!
Then I sent it to the people I think of in the same way.
Thank you very much for being a special part of my life
The purpose of this series is to encourage people to live as loving, compassionate, and peacemaking children of God: Jesus tells us to pray, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:10) God tells us through Micah (6:8), "He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God." And we know from Revelation 21:4 that there will be no more mourning, or crying, or pain, or death. Thus, Christian living requires us to set the standards of these conditions here on earth for our fellow human beings, and for the other animals, as a witness to the rest of the world. To do otherwise is not Christian.
