Last night, I invited my friend Emily over for dinner, to watch movies and to crochet. My mum and my aunt, get together to crochet or knit and watch television, so Emily and I imitated them and we watched television and crafted together. Emily made a fabulous scarf and I finished my mum’s hat.
While we crocheted, we watch The Boxtrolls and Song One. I highly recommend both of these movies. The Boxtrolls is not what we expected it to be but it was fantastic. I have been wanting to watch Song One, but it is a movie that Nick is not interested in watching so I convinced Emily to watch it with me.
I don’t want to spoil the story for you, however, the movie had a powerful message. Don’t put off for tomorrow, what you can do today. You never know what tomorrow holds.
I have learned this powerful lesson myself when I woke up from the coma. I had been out for roughly six weeks but for me it was one day. What if I had died and the last word I had with someone were words in anger? Would I want to leave this earth with them still upset with me?
God doesn’t want us angry with each other. In fact there is scripture about being angry.
Ephesians 4:31-32 Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other just as in Christ God forgave you. (NIV)
I make sure that my family knows how much I love them and miss them. I talk to my mum every day, just to check in and see what is new.
I don’t talk to my sister’s Irene & Marcie as much as I should and I am going to change that. I want them to know how much I truly love them and how much I am so glad that God chose me to be their sister.
I never want it to be too late to say the words I should have said today.
Please, if you will continue to pray for my family and I will keep praying for everyone who reads my blog. If you need me to pray for something specific, please let me know.
I pray you have a blessed Wednesday.
