It’s a beautiful Saturday morning in Austin, Texas. Had a great dinner with amazing friends, Adam and Katie Love, last night. The kind of dinner where you just cook, eat, drink. (Well, I can’t while on chemo. Man, I miss my ritas!!. They surely have to have SOME medicinal purposes!) The dinner was so nice and easy. Lots of laughter which does heal. Come home, go to bed. I wake up look in the mirror and see no hair and utter, “Dude, this is not your best look”. Oh well… I do my old man routine where I drink my coffee, read the paper and turn on ESPN. Gotta love the little things!
I start my day and like a hammer these questions interrupts my simple morning.
IF YOUR LIFE ENDED TODAY, WHAT DID YOU DO? WHO DID YOU HELP? DID YOU TRY EVERY DAY TO HAVE A CHRIST LIKE SPIRIT OF LOVE, FORGIVENESS & FAITH. DID YOU JUST BELIEVE?
Man, I just want my coffee!! The answer to those questions scared me a bit b/c I’ve fallen so short, so many times. But then I remembered God knows this. Where I am in life and it’s no surprise to him. I don’t believe he accidentally gave me cancer b/c he was not paying attention. I believe he gave me this day to do a better at being my best than I did yesterday. I think that’s how it works. You wake up, show up, try and just believe.
Now, I need to tell the people I love, that I love them b/c life happens. That’s what I’m learning…
