Make the days count!

JUST A THOUGHT: I was watching a story on my Facebook feed with a woman that was in her hospital bed. She made a phone call to the front desk and said no one has come to her room to visit her since she has been there. The nurse who picked up the call, (had just finished a phone call with his wife to honor her birthday, he told her work was busy so he wouldn’t be able to make it.) He responded to the patient’s request. She said that all her life, she spent studying, writing & working, her husband left her, she had no children. But she said, “one thing I’ve learned in life,” which was written on a piece of paper. She gave it to the nurse. As he began to open it, she passed away. The paper read,


“Don’t count the days, but make the days count!”

After that, he left work, went home and celebrated his wife’s birthday. In life we worry so much about making enough money to live. In the interim, we don’t take time to smell the roses, enjoying life with family & friends. Only to wake up one day & realize time has elapsed. Your children have grown up and you wonder what have you done with your life. Ecclesiastics 8:15


“So I recommend having fun, because there is nothing better for people in this world than to eat, drink, and enjoy life. That way they will experience some happiness along with all the hard work God gives them under the sun.”

With so much happening around us, many dying unexpectedly, others unfortunately losing their jobs thru no fault of their own. We must learn to have balance in our lives. Yes, making each day count is quite essential. In all of this, trust God to make it have meaning. Don’t worry if you don’t have enough to retire. Seek God for direction, Philippians 4:19


“He will supply the need.”
