"The Gift of Life!"
I admonish you to treasure your gift of life! It can be taken away from you in seconds! Many years ago my husband and I were traveling in the mountains near Lake Tahoe, Nevada. We were having a very pleasant "road" trip as we enjoyed one of the most beautiful days of our lives. Then suddenly... out of no where we saw a car speeding in the opposite lane down this very narrow mountainous path. We both watched as the driver lost control of his vehicle, scaled the mountain, and then flipped over as the mountains echoed the sounds of the potentially deadly crash!!! Time stopped!
I am a Registered Nurse so I told my husband that Good Samaritan Laws would protect me! We agreed to stop our car and assist the driver. Great minds think alike because when we looked frantically for the driver, we realized that many Good Samaritans had the same idea! We asked nervously, "Where is the driver?" We waited for the bad news.... Then someone said, "Oh, he's sitting up over there and they are removing little glass fragments from his hair. He's talking and he's alert and the ambulance is on it's way!" We thanked God for the miracle and the gift of life that our "new blessed friend" could continue to enjoy!
I admonish you to realize that but for the grace of God, this story would not have had a "Happy Ending!" But for His grace this man's life would have ended! Do not take your life for granted! Treasure your gift! Do what you need to do to improve the quality of your life, including losing those "pesky pounds" and make your life, your gift, the best life ever!
Life is your gift, praise God for it and do whatever it takes to make it better!!!
