Hold on tight

Today a little girl is no longer with her family. She was born damaged, and lived for seven years.

She's in God's arms now.

But her Mum and Dad are still here.

Tonight I am holding my family so tight, and praying for those who are grieving.

We don't know how long we have. We forget just how blessed we are, simply because we are here, we are together and we are safe and well. It's easy to get busy, busy, busy and feel overwhelmed and exhausted from the everyday. We work hard, for a holiday, for a break. But we need to remember to enjoy now.

Luke 12: 16-20

And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest.  He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain.  And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’

So this is a reminder, to me, to you if you need it... enjoy life, and those you love while you have them.
