No Re-Wind Buttons...

“Live a life of love.” Ephesians 5:2

Do you like to read? Why? Part of the enjoyment of reading a novel is that you don't know how it's going to turn out until you get to the last page. When you finish a book, do you ever think back on how the characters' lives might have been lived differently if they had known what the end would be like? The fact is, we must understand that there is a finality to life...we don't get any re-winds. What are you doing (or perhaps, not doing) with your life right now that you may regret later on? Rest assured, a life full of love is never regretted.

Father, I thank You for this day and for the fact that we don't know what tomorrow brings. I can only imagine how paralyzed with fear most of us would be if we knew the future and how our lives would end. You hold us in the palm of Your hand, and for that I am so very thankful. Help me to live a life of love, never regretting or wishing for a do-over. I love You. Amen and amen.
