How often have we put off important things until they're too late?
Today marks the beginning of Jesus' final week in Jerusalem. He tended his relationships to be sure all was in place, all was right. Let us also tend to our relationships and be sure all is right.
We think we always have time, another day, to tend to those things. But those things are at the very heart of our lives together, our communion with God and God's people.
Call someone you haven't talked to in awhile. Visit someone you haven't seen. Nurture your friendships and be with your family as you are able. Make time today. Don't put it off. For we never know who needs to be loved or when one's last breath might be.
Life is all too short and is made richer, better by being together. Blessings on this Palm Sunday as we begin our Holy Week journey. And may God change our hearts today.
I'm a wife, mom, pastor, human...probably not in that order. I struggle each day to be faithful to God, to my family and to my call as a Christian and all of those previously-mentioned roles. I pray to be positive, kind and thoughtful, but tend to fall short on all counts. I am inspired by sunrises and enjoy taking pictures (mostly my kids, deer in the yard and sunrises). I waste time playing stupid computer games and wishing I'd been better at all of the aforementioned roles. ;-)
