This past week I have been blessed to spend time in two of my favorite places – Boston and New York. I have, also, been visiting family that I do not get to see very often. It has been a great vacation and one that reminds me that life is not to be endured but to be enjoyed.
I have had people share with me about their spiritual experiences in which life went from black, white, and shades of gray to vibrant colors after they have had the experience. When we see life as just day-to-day drudgery, with no hope and no faith, life loses its color. When we understand that this lifetime is not forever and should be enjoyed, savored, and appreciated, life becomes filled with color. To see this color we have to have a positive, grateful attitude toward life. We must give and forgive, we must love, and we must look for the good around us.
Let’s not waste our days here in this experience we call life. We must find the Love that makes our hearts sing and fill our lives with it as much as we can. No one knows what comes next after this lifetime, but one thing is for sure – we have this life, this physical experience, and we can waste it or make the most of it. The choice is ours.
