Live Today a Little Brighter

Of course we all realize this. It is no news flash. But last night, it was a peek at reality from behind the curtained view of life. I was reminded last night that we won't always be here. Everything we take for granted, everything we love, everything we strive towards, it is all for a season. We often times get too wrapped up in our own goals and ambitions, that we lack to take a moment to step back and see how it's all coming together. To see the person we are becoming.

My one goal in life is to make a difference. Somewhere, somehow. I desire to help others find the truth, and love it for what it is. When someone asks me for help or advice, I want to point them to the cross and just be a witness of His love and never-ending mercy. This life is far too short to be lived without a cause. 

So while we busy ourselves with the daily to-do's and the running here and there, take a moment to cherish the sunbeams warming your face. Listen to the pitter-patter of the rain and let it hum you to sleep. Breathe in the fresh air and fill your lungs with the joy of a new morning. Smile at a stranger. BE the change. Don't sit and hope for it to fall out of the sky.
