Motivating people to practice intentional acts of kindness

Life Is God's Gift

Disbelief, shock, then anger are the initial responses to a personal announcement of imminent death. It is rarely an acceptable diagnosis. I want to live! Here! Physically!

Some time ago, my wife and I traveled over the rocky road of her breast cancer, which carried a major surgical part, then chemotherapy and reconstructive surgery. Never did she, or I, regard this as a death warrant. We responded with aggressive tactics aimed to deny death any chance of winning. Hezekiah, too, fought as best he knew how to live. He, too, had a powerful love of life and wanted badly to go on living.

Life is God's gift. It is not an insignificant holding time. There will come a time when, with a sigh, approaching death may be acceptable, maybe a relief welcomed and even longed for.  Until then, however, death is an enemy to be opposed, stalled, and blocked every way we can.

Therefore, I urge you, enjoy each new day as another gift from God. Thank him for it and make good use of it. Fill it with wonderful things — we are not people who believe in 'killing time'. Time is an unrenewable resource: the moment that we waste cannot be recovered.
