I wrote a letter to Connie that I will take over to the church sometime this weekend. I can't explain why, but I started the letter this way:
"6,868 & 10,368. Do you know what those two numbers represent? Believe it or not, the first number is the number of days I lived before we went on our first date. The second number is the number of days since then. Can you believe that almost 2/3 of my life has been spent with you? I am so thankful that God has placed you and me together!"
Putting my time on earth in terms of days really impacted me. I began to wonder how many days I have left. How much of my life have I lived? (Go here if you'd like to calculate the number of days between two dates).
As I was pondering this, I realized that my days are truly numbered. I then told myself that I don't want to waste one of the precious days I have left. How about you?
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
