Dear Ones,

  Happy Weekend! Looks to be sunny and beautiful weather. This morning I made cookies on a stick and did food prep for the weekend and cleaned the apartment. We are going to the cabin tomorrow morning and coming back Sunday afternoon. Hope to get a swim and sauna in and maybe a hot game or two of Scrabble! 
Devotions from Judy’s heart

   We are all one day going to run out of days! For some that may come in their youth, and others in old age but it will come to all of us! We may have dreams that will not happen, and projects that will go unfinished, and prayers that we will not see the answers in our life time; but the question is, did we make the most of our days and did we finish well?

   It is comforting to know God will care for us all our days, whether they be few or many. I read this morning from Isaiah 46:3b and 4(God’s Word), “I’ve taken care of you from the time you were born. Even when you’re old, I’ll take care of you. Even when your hair turns gray, I’ll support you. I made you and will continue to care for you. I’ll support you and save you.”

   God will care for us all our days. If we are young, we are to enjoy our youth while we have vigor (Eccl 12) but also know that one day life will be over. Make use of the opportunities God gives. And if we are old, know that we can’t change things from our past but we can change ourselves in the present and make use of the rest of our days.

   Maybe we need to make things right with others in our family or let those around us know how much they mean to us. When my brother had brain cancer and knew the end was near, he did this before he died. We don’t know if our lives will be suddenly taken and those opportunities will be gone.

   We may also ask ourselves if we have been a channel of God’s presence to others and if we have passed on the faith to the next generation. Such questions can help us use the time we have left.

  Life is soon over and death is the doorway to something so indescribable that there are not words. May we set our eyes on eternity with the Lord and lean harder into Him each day before they run out.

  Challenge for today: Do something today that will last for eternityBlessings on your weekend and prayers and love, Judy
