Just a thought to help start your week.
Are you prepared? A brand new week is ahead. A new day, if you are reading this in the morning time. You have things to do, places to be, and people to see. Are you prepared for all that lies ahead?
Now, lest I scare friends and loved ones with this week’s photo, this was not taken just recently, but three years ago. Three years ago this month, to be exact, my youngest daughter was “t-boned” by a very fast pickup. I wasn’t prepared for the phone call I received from her, sobbing. I wasn’t prepared when I arrived merely brief moments later to see the glass and car pieces that were all over the road.
I wasn’t prepared. But I was thankful. You see, other than some bruises and shards of glass that filled her hair and clothing, my child was fine. And she was prepared – not so much for the accident, but for life, because, you see, her life is in the Father’s hands. She believes by faith and trust in Him and has made Jesus her Lord and Savior, ensuring that her eternity will be in His presence.
I’m thankful that day wasn’t her last. But I’m also so very thankful that she was prepared. Are you? And if you are, will you help prepare someone else this week?
Just a thought.
