What If It's All Over Tomorrow?
Tomorrow, the Mayan calendar ends. Does the world? A number of Christian friends see what they believe to be signs of the End Times for this world, too. More worrisome to me, the news media, keen on helping gun control along and ratings up, remind us now that there are 24 gun murders daily in the US and more than ten times this number of people shot daily.
We can see all this as reason to worry. Or we can see it as a reason to be today the sort of husband or wife or partner we imagine we could be. If you're still alive 26 years after your spouse dies (as I am), will you enjoy looking back at your part in your relationship? Or are you putting off being loving, grateful, kind, respectful, gracious, forgiving, generous, and awed for a more convenient day?
Gotta go kiss my bonus husband right now. He's an incredible man. I want to feel his love every day for the rest of my life, and I want him to feel mine, even if the worst happens to one of us tomorrow.
