I have seen this question asked religiously on social networks every week, like clock-work. It’s also followed by, “I can’t wait for the weekend to get here.” But once the weekend has come and gone, it’ll be time to do it all over again.
I’ve learned that we shouldn’t be concerned with tomorrow because it has its own issues (adapted from Matt. 6:34). Sometimes we’re so concerned with the next thing, that we miss the happenings in the moment. We fail to show up for the present. We must be alive, breathing and fervently living each moment.
I received word the other day that someone I knew passed away. It was said that he was in-and-out of the hospital intermittently, leading up to him perishing. I wonder what was he thinking? Was he concerned with making it to the weekend? I sincerely doubt it. Maybe he was saying, “I just want one more day, God. Just one more is all.”
How about his family? Do they care that it’s the weekend? Probably not. That’s just the point. It’s the weekend, but they’re planning a funeral. God bless them.
Summing this all up: Live in every moment and be present. Please don’t miss life, looking for the next thing.
Until next time,
Love & Peace.
P.S. Rest Peacefully, Freeman.
