Where do you live?

  I have been listening to a book of cd, while driving here in Colorado by the man that wrote "The Shack" and it is very good!  Can't recall the name at the moment, but one of the lines just hit me between the eyes.

One of the characters ask another "Where do you live?"  The response was I live where I am!  Do you hear that?  Are you living where you are right now?

After the storms of the past week and more expected today, the question just resonates with my soul ~ Are we living where we are?  Are you living each moment as if it might be your last?  We all take this for granted and think well we have a lot of time...well none of us know the answer to how long we have!  So let me suggest that we all begin to live our journey right where we are every moment!  Beginning now!

Pray for the people in Oklahoma the ones that lost loved ones, those that lost belongings, the first responders that witness things that none of us ever want to witness, but most of all please call out to the one that will get you through - Call out to Jesus!  Ask Him to hold you and get you through!

Things are replaced and I know this because of a home fire, but our loved ones are different.  Enjoy your families, hug them a little longer, spend a little more time just being, call them and tell them you love them!  Also, be sure that they really know where to store their treasures!  Be sure to share Jesus by the way you walk the talk, the way you love on them, and with His Words of Love.

I am definitely trying to live where I am now and not let the little things in life get in the way. It isn't always easy, but I am gradually getting better at doing so!

That is a good question! We always think we have more time....
