Lenten Day 9 – numbering our days

As I was typing my last post – Dust you are and to dust you shall return – one of our classmates from my small close-knit high school class passed away.

She was a chronic illness warrior – and had fought through some unbelievable battles. She was one hell of a fighter, so strong and full of life.

My heart has been hurting terribly for her family and for her dearest friends as well. As I said, we have been so blessed to remain close to each other as a group so this aches big and wide.

I wrote in my previous post that we are frail – and I am sitting with that thought now.

Today’s Lenten verse has been set aside for one that feels more appropriate for the circumstance:

Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom. – Psalm 90:12

As we are reminded throughout Scripture, life is precious and time is fleeting – so love your people hard and do things you mean to do today. Say your “l love yous” and live generously. Focus on the things that matter.

Today is all any of us are promised.

Rest easy, Sweet Jacques. You will be so missed. ❤

Be well, everybody. Take care of yourselves and each other.

Grace and Blessings.
