One Month to Live: Day 29

What reminders of mortality have you encountered this week? How do you usually feel when you face these little reminders?

Allergies are getting bad. I notice them a lot more the last few days. I keep thinking I will quit eating nightshades, but I do it anyway. Most foods I really like are nightshades. However, I look at my mother and I have promised my boys I won’t be like her, so I have to do something.

R’s going to start a new diet soon and I will do it with him for 30 days. Hopefully that will make a big push in my life for getting out from under the afflictions.

How do I usually feel about these reminders? A little sad. Mostly, though, I worry just a bit if R will be bothered by my being old. And then I go on about my business.

What would you want to hear God say to you when you meet him in Heaven? What would you say to him?

I’d like him to say, “Welcome home, girl! We’ve been waiting for you. You did GREAT!” And I’d like a big, non-scary hug.

What would I say to him?

It seemed a lot longer than a few hours on this end, God. But I’m glad to be home. Thank you.

What eternal investment have you made this week? How much time have you spent engaged in God’s word? How much time connecting with people in ways that matter most? Set an eternal goal for yourself and find the time to pursue it in the coming week.
