What if you died tomorrow?

A friend of mine had her daughter in law die suddenly just after her 40th birthday. When I talked to her about it she said: “One day she was cooking in the kitchen and the next day she was dead.” Oh mamas. Broke my heart. Also got me to thinking: “What if I died tomorrow? What if I’m cooking in the kitchen today and the Lord brings me home tomorrow? How would today look different? Would I cuddle my little loves more? Would I extend grace more and overlook offenses? Would I not make a big deal out of little things?”

Death is imminent. We don’t know when we are leaving this earth. Everyday we are laying the groundwork for our legacy. Everyday we are closer to our journey heavenward… but we certainly don’t live that way do we? It’s so easy to get caught up in this life isn’t it? We are so prone to forget this is not are home! That is one reason Janell and I decided to call this ministry “Eternally Minded Mamas”! We want to encourage you in that eternal perspective! To set your mind on things above!

This video below is just me sharing some thoughts I had on my mom’s birthday. She passed away about 6 years ago. I often ask myself, when thinking of my own mom, how will my children remember me?

 

What if you knew you were going to die tomorrow? How would today look different? What is keeping you from living that way? 

“…it is appointed unto men once to die…” Hebrews 9:27

“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” Colossians 3:2

“…you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.” James 4:14

Keep eternity in mind today Mamas!

Love, Katie
