A friend shared this and I am doing the same. It is a good reminder of how we should treat each day.
Our journey here on earth is like the seasons, representing the different phases of our lives. Spring represents birth, and the innocence of everything new. Summer is filled with the vitality and naivety of youth, with hopes, dreams and the pursuit of life at it’s fullest. Then it seems we quietly slip into fall, with confidence from lessons learned, knowledge to approach challenges more realistically, and feeling a sense of urgency to accomplish our goals. Then, all too quickly, winter is upon us. Our hair reflects the fallen snow, we move a little slower, feel the aches and pains of aging, and still can’t comprehend how quickly we’ve become the “older folks” we never thought we’d be. Our thoughts will take us to the things we wish we had done, wanted to do and even regrets of what we did do. But all too soon winter will come to an end, and only what is done for Christ will last. Now is the time to determine what mark you will leave on this earth, for whatever you want to accomplish in life – do quickly. Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today – for how you live today will determine whether or not you will live forever with Jesus. Choose to live a godly life, sewing seeds of kindness and sharing God’s love in every season so that you’ll be prepared for eternal life in heaven.
