In the End, It’s Not the Years in Your Life that Count…

As another week comes to and end, I can’t help think about Life and its importance. Every life is an opportunity to be a blessing! As I created today’s meme, I was thinking a lot about the importance of living a life of meaning.

Abraham Lincoln lived a life of meaning. Some may think that living a life with “Life” in your years would mean a life filled with partying and revelry. I believe that President Lincoln inferred a life filled with service and devotion to undying principles. That is certainly the life he  embodied and represented.

When my father passed away a couple of years ago, those who eulogized him and knew him best remembered his many moments of service and the true friend that he was. My father lived a life filled with Life. My father was not wealthy or famous but he cared for his friends and family and so his legacy was an abundant one nonetheless.

What kind of life are you living? What matters most to you? Are you trying to make life better for others? Do you let others know you care? Could it be said of you that others’ lives were made better because of you?

Those are the questions I am asking myself today. It’s always a good thing to step back and analyze life from time to time. Even when we think we are on track, taking time to reflect and allowing for course adjustments to be made helps to make sure that our life is on the right track. For me, it is very important to live a life filled with Life. I saw that living a life filled with service and love would be of prime importance during my near-death experience. Irregardless of how long I live, I hope my life will be seen as leaving a little bit of heaven on earth.

I hope that you are blessed with a life filled with Life! May the world be blessed with each of our lives!
