Not Tiptoeing through the Tulips

It's been a few days since I have written. I have had to process many emotions as I come to terms with my granddaddy's cancer. Yes, he has cancer. I haven't said anything until now out of respect for him. What I'm going to say today, he would approve of.

In the midst of life, we all deal with things. It absolutely amazes me how some people react when things are suddenly not going their way. People complain and fuss about things that don't even matter in the grand scheme of things.

Last week, I was thinking about my granddaddy and this thought came to mind, "At the end of your life, do you want to look back on things only to realize that you spent the majority of your life fighting with your family?"

I don't. Each day, I have to make a choice whether or not I'm going to react in love to those around me. Life is too short to be complaining. God has done so much for each one of us that we ought to be ashamed at ourselves. The truth is, most of us will just go on taking that grace He so freely gives for granted.

Wake up, people! Ask God to help you see others as He sees them. We have ALL messed up. None of us are perfect. Whatever happened to treating others as you want to be treated?
