If you knew on Monday evening that Monday Feb 8 was to be your last day alive on earth how differently would you have lived it?
Picture A..B.C. weather.
Monday 8th February 2016 – The challenge is to live your ‘usual’ Monday life but to respond as if it were to be your last day.
Who will you phone, write, text, hug? Will you take some time out to enjoy the day? Will you read, write, paint pray?
Monday here is our usual shopping day. This challenge has touched me personally. I will start by finishing and posting the letter to a dear friend which has been ‘hanging around’ for weeks.
* I will do my best to ensure that memories I leave behind in town will be positive. I am intentionally aiming for politeness, consideration, kindness and generosity.
What will you do?
Choose to make it a significant day!
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

I know I’m late for this, but I feel this could be applied to everyday, because we never know when we, or someone we care for, will be gone. Honestly, if I knew that day was my last, I would try to be as positive as I could. To go out smiling and making others laugh.
I agree with the person above. It would be good to live each day as if it were our last. For me if I lived this way I would try to make sure all issues re love and forgiveness were settled on my part – I would not want there to be anything that could disqualify me from entering heaven’s gates. Then I’d pray for my loved ones being left behind, enjoy a lovely home-cooked meal, watch a few episodes of “Friends” (they always make me laugh) and spend my remaining time writing about my last day on earth.
hmmm… deep thought…
I hope my last day on earth will be spent
in prayer and with my loving husband 🙂 ♥ ❤
