A Year to Live

September 18, 2013

I found out the other day that I have less than a year to live.  It was quite a shock when I found out.  It wasn’t my doctor who told me but an article that I read.   The thesis was that when you subtract the time sleeping, working, tending to personal matters, hygiene, odd chores, medical matters, eating, travelling, and miscellaneous time stealers, you have about 14 days in each year to spend as you wish.  The life expectancy of a male in Nova Scotia is 78 years, so that leaves me with 347 days. 
So, the questions begs to be asked, “What are you going to do with your days?”   After all, it is really up to you.  Nobody else can spend that time for you.  You may allow others to steal it from you but it will be your decision. Is it any wonder that Jesus’ brother James wrote” How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone.”
The choice is yours, so are you just going to put in time and try to get the most years in your life, or are you going to try to get the most life in your years? Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
