Coffee and Jesus: I have worked hard my entire life, not just "for the man", but " in life". There have been times where it's been such a struggle that I've literally begged the Lord to just take me home. However, as I look back, I wouldn't have changed one moment, as every experience not only made me stronger but brought me closer to my beloved.
I learned at an early age that people come and go in our lives...some are here for a minute, some a little longer and a very few through the long haul. I learned the painful lesson of staying in a situation too long, despite the reminder of your screaming soul and aching heart...it not only hurts you, it hurts the other person worse. I've also discovered recently that although I love everyone easily and quickly, I'm not built for the long haul anymore. My days are grower shorter, where I could still see the starting line, I can now see the finish line as it draws closer. I don't take my time here on earth for granted, I never have...everyday is a gift.
Therefore, live every moment as if it were your last, love much, forgive often, be kind, see the goodness, turn off the TV, experience every day, laugh until your belly hurts, smile and tell the ones you love how very important they are in your life and be thankful.
This is it...there are no repeat performances, so be fierce as you embark on every new day, as THIS is the day the Lord hath made, hallelujah!! ❤️😁✌️
