WOW! WHAT A RIDE!

Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it."
— Mother Teresa

 Could we go there for just a moment?  The writer of James asks this question:“For what is your life?  It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away.”   One translation says:  “Your life is but a wisp of vapor (a puff of smoke, a mist) that is visible for a little while and then disappears (into thin air).

Wow!  Perspective is a good thing.  Life is a precious moment given to all of us.  James posies a powerful question that is worthy of taking a precious moment of our life to ponder.  How would you answer the question today beloved?

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away."  Maya Angelou

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." 
Albert Einstein

Learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t live long enough to make them all yourself. —– Eleanor Roosevelt 

“When we long for life without difficulties, remind us that oaks grow strong in contrary winds and diamonds are made under pressure”

Peter Marshall  


Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day.
Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course?
Each of us has such a bank. It's name is TIME.
Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds.
Every night it writes off as lost, whatever of this you have failed to invest to a good purpose.
It carries over no balance. It allows no over draft. Each day it opens a new account for you. Each night it burns the remains of the day.
If you fail to use the day's deposits, the loss is yours. There is no drawing against "tomorrow."
You must live in the present on today's deposits. Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness and success!
The clock is running!! Make the most of today.
To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.
To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.
To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.
To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who just missed a train.
To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask someone who just avoided an accident.
To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal at the Olympics.

Treasure every moment that you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with. And remember time waits for no one.
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why its called the present.
   Alexander Graham Bell


"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly        proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!"                                             

My heart cheers when I read this quote.  I'm not sure what Hunter Thompson is exactly referring too, but as believers we ought to reach heaven's gates in a blaze of glory and a shout; 
"WOW! WHAT A RIDE JESUS!" 

“ I have come that you may have LIFE, and that you may have it more abundantly.  I am the way, the truth, and the life.” 
Jesus Christ
