Numbered Days
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. — James 4:14

I was planning to play a joke on my sister and give her a homemade calendar that had all her favorite weekdays throughout every month of the entire year on it. My sister's Sunday through Saturday looks more like Rest-day, Not-to-day, Maybe-day, One-day, Some-day, Who Knows-day, and We'll See-day. But as I was putting it together, I had an epiphany that the days we go by on a traditional calendar aren't really there for us until we awaken to each of them day by day. OMG! While my intent was to make a joke about my sister's non-existent days, the reality is that unless we make it to a tomorrow - our future days do not exist either! We can only be certain of the moment we stand in right now. Thoughts are whirling in my head right as I think about so many ideas and dreams I’ve taken no further than a thought, and the years I've let pass by me that I could have made plans and moved on with my dreams. Who knows what they could be like in this moment? Who will ever know if I don’t do something now that can be added to another moment should tomorrow come? We cannot expect to experience living an abundant life if our mindset and actions are mediocre. Precious are our numbered days, and a calendar has no guarantee of what the numbers are. May we exercise more passion and gratitude for every moment the Lord blesses us with to be our best and live our best life to His honor and glory. Amen.
