In searching for a 2011 image on Google, I came upon this one (above). There were lots of other ones I could pick from, but this one just seemed right. Really look at it. The numbers are on gift bags. And you know what? Every new year we get to celebrate happy & healthy is a gift!
How many people do you know who lost a loved one unexpectedly in 2010?
How many people do you know who were diagnosed with cancer in 2010?
How many people do you know who divorced in 2010?
How many people do you know who miscarried or had a still born child or lost an child in 2010?
How many people do you know who were in serious car wrecks, plane crashes or other unexpected accidents in 2010?
The point is, we aren't promised tomorrow. We're not even promised our next breath. Life is fragile. In the grand scheme of things, our lives on this earth are so brief. Rather than make a list of resolutions that you'll (likely) never keep, let's all resolve to live this year for THIS MOMENT. Make sure you're right with your family & friends and most importantly with God. You just don't know. Will you be happy & healthy when January 1, 2012 rolls around?
