What Matters Most

Hi, my faithful readers! It is such a pleasure to be with you every week and speak about topics that will make you think and apply in your journey called Life. Last week was tough on me because it has been seven years that my youngest son David passed away. The feelings that I initially experienced when it occurred was overwhelming like a tsunami engulfing me. Now, I still have feelings of longing to see him and have him with me.

What I have learned during these difficult times is that what matters most is the love he had for me and I for him. The memories we shared while he was alive has caused me to fill my heart with peace and joy. At first, I lamented of the what if, could have been, and should have been conversation in my mind.

Of course, that does not or will not change anything. I decided to shift my mindset to what we did have and remember those precious moments. When I started to do this, I felt that my love for him blossomed into a botanical garden with myriads of colorful flowers. The aroma caused me to want to share the love I had to others.

My focus became to give others the expression of gratitude, love, and joy so they can also experience it as we share Life together. I am saying all of this to encourage each person to:

  1. Take a moment of time and evaluate who is in your life presently.

  2. Determine are they adding and multiplying more into the relationship.

  3. If they are, value and demonstrate with actions how much you love them.

  4. If they are not, what have you learned from the relationship and let them know you care for them, however, you are needing to let them go for your own good.

  5. You decide who is in your life and what they will bring to it.

  6. By doing this assessment and putting into actions, you choose not to compromise what you are wanting out of your journey. Life is too short!!

  7. You will build a life that you will enjoy wholeheartedly!

“No matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.” 1 Corinthians 13:3

Peace, Love, and Joy!
