But I was introduced to a different kind of worry recently.
I have a patient who was telling me about her boy that she lost. She said that when he was 11 or so, he was out mowing the lawn and got hit by a drunk driver. He didn't make it, and neither did the drunk teen driving the car. Just mowing the lawn. Doing a chore for his mother. As simple and as quick as that.
Whoa. My stomach knotted just thinking about the possibility of losing my little boy that early. I can't even imagine.
Then I began to think of my cousin, who lost her days old baby boy a few weeks ago. Hello worry, where did you come from?
But then I went to church the other day, and Pastor Craig seemed to be talking directly to me when discussing that we are God's masterpieces. When he reminded us that God has each of our days planned for us before we even exist, be it 4 days, 60 years, or 90 years. I realized at that time, honestly, why worry? God already knows what he has planned out for us. And? God is GOOD. It is so true.
So each day that I wake up? Yeah, I'm definitely going to be thanking God for a new day to spend with my sweet boy.
The point of this post? Cherish your time with your loved ones. Each day is precious, and is truly a gift. OH, and there's really no point to worrying. :)
And the below quote is just perfect...
