Thursday Thoughts

Hello everyone. I thought I would just share a few of my thoughts this afternoon. It’s been a really busy day here at work and it has reminded me how important it is to do what you love in life. I like the way that Aaron Neville said it in his 1966 hit, Tell it like it is:
“Life is too short to have sorrow
You may be here today and gone tomorrow
You might as well get what you want
So go on and live
Baby go on live”

It would be wise of us to make the best of this ephemeral existence (on earth) given to us by God. We should strive to do all the things most important to us and with all of our might. For me, I will strive to pray with all my might. I will love with all my might. I will hope with all my might and I will live with all my might. I’m not really sure where this road in life will take me, but I know I will not be alone. Enjoy your weekend and accomplish something. Peace~

I agree with those words. After being ill a few years ago I realised that I shouldn't take life for granted and live it to the full. I'll do my best to accomplish something as I waddle around this weekend. Have a good one too x

Wish you the same. Thanks for the advice. God knows we need it.

Life is short, and getting even shorter, we defintely need to make the most of it, according to God's will. Have a great weekend.
Stay blessed.

Love how you pick the most thoughtful lines. I hear these songs everyday, but draw my attention to the meaning I often take for granted.

Stephen A. Bess said...

Thank you. Did you click Aarons name? You can hear that song if you do. Have a great weekend. :)
