Too often we don’t realize what we have until it is gone;
Too often we wait too late to say “I’m sorry – I was wrong.”

Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones we hold dearest to our hearts;
And we allow foolish things to tear our lives apart.

Far too many times we let unimportant things into our minds;
And then it’s usually too late to see what made us blind.

So be sure that you let people know how much they mean to you;
Take that time to say the words before your time is through.

Be sure that you appreciate everything you’ve got;
And be thankful for the Little things in life that mean a lot.

  2. PLEASE PRAY… My husband at this very moment has been called by a family member to the bedside of someone who is terminally ill. (It is night here.) This person would have been a devout R.C. throughout life. If anyone is reading this… please pray that this person will only see Jesus – He who has paid it all for us.

      • Thank you for praying… this person passed away yesterday (Friday) morning. I now leave it with the Lord but I have a peace about it as I know that it was of Him that we were contacted the night before and I felt an urgency about it. My husband got an opportunity to read and pray with him. I also take from “Little Things” that they are often really “Big” things, where witnessing is concerned. We should never miss opportunities to reach people for Him while they are this side of eternity. Life passes so swiftly…

        • Thank you for the update Elizabeth. I am grateful for the opportunity your husband had to minister. We also have ministered to many on their deathbeds, and as you say we then leave it with the Lord. I pray believers would take every opportunity to share the Gospel with those within their sphere of influence. Time may be shorter than we think. I will update my post.
