Psa 118:24 — This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
If today were your last day,
How would you live?
Would you seek out the needy
And cheerfully give?
Would you visit your loved ones
And tell them good-bye,
Praise God and Thank God
And not question why?
Or cry and be bitter,
Till the sun starts to set,
You're not gonna get.
Yes, if today were your last day,
What would you do?
Cry till it's over
Or live till it's through?

|I know what I'd do because I've been in the place where I've faced my own mortality. Yes, there are tears and fears but there is also the gift that presents itself in every moment we're alive. Life is precious. What a gift you have.

|William, this wonderful poem was a gentle reminder for me to prioritize my life (especially as the summer comes to a close, and with it, my vacation from work-- I have been mourning the "last days" of my freedom instead of making the most of them!)
I enjoyed my visit to your den and will visit again soon!
