a life well-lived
I’m reading a book that is making me rethink the ordinary. My ordinary is filled with health and abundance. We leave each morning with kisses and end each day with bedtime prayers and too tight hugs. It has become so routine, I don’t even consider an alternative ending. Yet…
I am not guaranteed tomorrow.
It is a book that is making me face this fact.
I might not finish writing this blog post.
I might not finish my current read.
I might not finish the school year in five days.
This life I’m living could end at any moment, which leads me to consider how I can make the most of the moments I have.
I’m thinking that a life well-lived isn’t so much about being comfortable or getting it right. Rather, it is about making much of God. Perhaps this means standing firm in what I believe and loving the best I can.
At the end of it all there will be many things unfinished. Hopefully loving well won’t be among the things I didn’t accomplish.
