When I wrote my book “My Precious Life” in 2014 I had heard this expression many times but didn’t pay much attention to its meaning. Now, as I watch what’s happening the world over, millions of people dying of the coronavirus, others succumbing to life’s natural cycle, it is hitting home just how precious life is.
Are we really living on a daily basis? Are we making the most of our days? Are we looking out for our friends, family, neighbor? Are we saying, “I love you” and then showing that love?
There is more to life than eating, sleeping, working and playing, and because life is precious we need to make sure we are truly living.
Today I am going to make a concentrated effort to really live. I don’t know what that will look like but will let God handle the details. Carpe diem!
