Sharing a Facebook memory I posted on September 12, 2017…
In everything give thanks. My uncle sent me a last minute reminder about our family reunion “just because”, although he said he knew we probably couldn’t come. However, for the first time in years it worked out that my husband was off and my kids were out of school. This never happens. We decided to come home and surprise everyone when we received the reminder from him.
I am so thankful we did because it allowed me to see and hug my grandmother one last time. I am thankful for a God who cares about us, and even in this allowed it to be so. It was on my mind at one point during our final service together to take a video/picture of her at church, but after dismissal I did not, so instead I will have to hold the memory of that day in my heart.
If it is on your heart to send a text, call, post a message on facebook, etc.than just do it. Your facebook post may be for just one person, but that’s enough. The good shepherd left all to find the one that was lost. You may be laughed at, talked about, ignored, and put down when you do, but if your message reaches the one it was meant for than it is worth it all. I realize when I post bible verses, devotionals, etc. it is not for everyone (or probably even most), but if it reaches that one than that’s okay!
Hold your loved ones close, take the pictures and videos, make the calls, get yourself right with the Lord today, because tomorrow is not promised. Enjoy and give thanks for what you have today, no matter how great or small. Be blessed everyone, and enjoy today!!
