Don’t cry because it happened, smile because it happened.  Dr. Seuss

From my perspective, as long as I can remember living is hard and life has always been a battle, the thing is most of those battles were not worth the time, the pain, the shame, the language, or the effort coupled with little being resolved.  I suggest we cut the crap and lighten up so as to make the most of our life because no one will get off of this planet alive.

To live is a one time event meaning there are no do-overs, so regardless of how hard some push their bodies to perfection, which is not a bad idea and another subject, oftentimes in an attempt to preserve our youthfulness we sleep in senseless chambers, while others are taking every available over the counter or illegal drug of any form to slow the aging process while hoping to bring back the luster to their sagging skin for the sole purpose of cheating death.

There are plenty of verses in the Bible that tells us death is going to happen, and we won’t know from one minute to the next when it will visit; so make no mistake about it, it will come at its appointed time to each and every creature on Planet Earth.

I know The Gospel is the truth, so I believe James 4:14  (KJV) when he tells us Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow, then goes on to say, What is your life? followed by the answer to its own question.  It is even a vapor that appeareth for a little time and then vanishes away.  So making all those I am gonna live longer than dirt plans without first consulting Jesus Christ could be the first step that brings you closer to death.  What I mean is you can be dead tomorrow, if that is His will.

Life is precarious and God has not put us in charge of the future, but He did give us choices in order to live a better and longer life.  Such as, Children obey your parents: for this is right. Honor your father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.  Ephesians 6:1-3 KJV   Did you notice the verse stopped short of saying Forever?

Furthermore, it is written in John 15:5: I am the vine, ye are the branches: he that abides in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me you can do nothing.  Well now, to me that means, our plans are nothing without approval. 

And yes, that includes breathing, for without it we will die and that’s that.  Now there is hope for an Everlasting Life that can be fruitful; that is if we Obey the Laws of God, assuring us that once is quite enough and that death will lead those who believe and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior to that Everlasting Life...

Just to make it simple: Life Goes On Until It Doesn’t, and there is nothing you or I can do about it.  Staying in the house will not save you, it will only make you an unhappy hermit that may die at home, alone.  Exercising can’t save you, walking out of the gym is deadly, you can be hit by a car or die from dehydration.  Maybe there is some unknown virus in the air, you just never know.

Am not trying to spread gloom and doom, am just trying to tell you our lives are in the Hands of our Creator, and the most precious gift He has given us is Breath.  It’s sad to say but some people just exist because they haven’t learned to live; breathing in and out to them is just another routine.

I see no point in waiting for the storm to pass, why not open unmarked doors and new windows instead of spending all your money on products claiming they will help save your life?  Why not take different routes and get rid of outdated plans just to see what God has for you and your body?  Try doing things not knowing how they will turn out, you may find a new talent, and stop looking for yourself in others, you’re in your heart, let that person out to create a new you in the eyes of the world, better yet, in the eyes of Jesus Christ.

For all it’s worth some of us has been dealt a bad hand, but that doesn’t mean we have to focus on it.  Look at life as if it were a song and sing it, when it’s a game, play it while meeting the challenges, and realize all of it is not a dream, some come true but not without sacrifices.

FYI: If you want to live a longer life stop focusing on death, you will get there soon enough and don’t let stumbling blocks liken to hatred stop your progress.  Hate paralyze and confuse our lives, often to the point of no return, but love releases hate and harmonize our lives. 

In other words, You Only Live Once, so preoccupy yourself with living life to the fullest, leaving hate on the sidelines to make space for joy.   Like it or not, Death Will Happen and without your permission.   I suggest you enjoy Breathing while you can that other stuff can wait on death.

    a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior
    to writing. I’ve had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
