I believe that this life is not all; neither the beginning nor the end. I believe while I tremble; I trust while I weep.

THE GIFT OF LIFE

We mostly grab quick snatches of ourselves in the mirror while we're in a hurry, but every once in a while we steal a moment to take a good, long look at the women we have become. We notice more gray hair that stubbornly reemerges despite the valiant efforts of our hairdressers. Lines and wrinkles have made their appearances around our eyes and mouths.

We can't help but think back to the days when we were young. And we might feel a bit melancholy. But dear sister, look again. Youth is gone, replaced by the gray hair of wisdom and the wrinkles of a life lived with concern, care, and laughter.

Time is fleeting and precious. God has entrusted each of us with this precious gift called life to fulfill a unique and divine purpose.

With eternity in view, it's time to live, work, and love—passionately, joyfully, purposefully, reverently.
Read Proverbs 16:31.
I WANT TO LIVE MY LIFE WITH PASSION, JOY, PURPOSE, AND REVERENCE. THANK YOU, LORD.
