A Keeper ~ Anchored In Him


It was a way of life, and sometimes it made me crazy.
All that re-fixing, reheating, renewing, I wanted just
once to be wasteful. Waste means affluence. Throwing
away things meant you knew there'd always be more.

But then my husband died, and on that clear, cold morning,
in the warmth of our bedroom, I was struck with the pain
of learning that sometimes there isn't any more.
No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate
together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more
"just one minute." Sometimes, what we care about the
most gets all used up and goes away . . . never to return
before we can say good-bye, say "I love you."

So, while we have it . . . it's best we love it . . . . and care for
it . . . and fix it when it's broken . . . . and heal it when it's sick. This is true . . . for marriage . . . . and old cars . . . . and children with bad report cards . . . . and dogs with bad hips and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.

Some things we keep - like a best friend that moved away or a
classmate we grew up with. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what. Life is important, like people we know who are special . . . and so, we keep them close!

If you are "A Keeper" please pass this page along to 
all those people that are "keepers" in your life . . . by saying
thank you for being a special part of my life . . . .
You're a Keeper!

Isn't it amazing how the trivial things of life we let bother us, but
we only remember them after they are gone. Many times we
waste our time on earthly things that are considered hay and
stubble instead of thinking of eternity where we can spend
it with Jesus Christ and other loved ones on the streets of
pure gold if we have accepted Him as our personal Savior.
The question is simple, where will you spend eternity?
Have you told your spouse or children or other family
members that you love them?

Love, often we don't realize how precious it is or how much we love someone unil they are gone ! ! ! Live life to the fullest for God, our days are short here on earth compared to eternity . . .
