One thing that was said is that we all have the same disease - Mortality.
One day, we all will die.
For a few days this week, I felt horrendous. I am so much better now, but for a few days I truly felt beaten down by life. I needed to be reminded that I have a purpose. I needed to remember that there are places that I haven't yet ventured, like Spain. I needed to dream.
Above all else, I want God's will for my life. I have learned that the very breath of Christianity, the core is the spirit of sacrifice. I am learning to take comfort in life's small pleasures. I am learning the deep meaning of hugs. I am learning the beauty of prayer. I have learned to appreciate the sound of laughter, because true laughter....genuine and pure laughter isn't something that you hear much these days.
I want my life to have meaning. I've learned that God gives our lives meaning. I have come to know Him. I am learning His depth, His beauty...and the beauty of our individual purposes.
Yes, reader, you have a purpose. It probably doesn't involve watching television programs or checking facebook every hour. But we are all human. I am guilty.
If we lived out our true God given purpose, the world would look different.
Love would flow naturally. We would embrace life. We would appreciate beauty in the mundane. We would cease to complain. We would teach one another. Learn from one another. Embrace and love one another in the purest and deepest form imaginable. If we truly followed the divine will of the Father, this life would look very much like Heaven.
Let's make big and beautiful bucket lists. Let's live. Let's surrender our lives to God and watch great things unfold. Let's find beauty in one another and find peace at the foot of the Cross.
