Five-Minute Friday: READY

Ready. Set. Go.

Are you ready?

Ready for the day. Ready for the challenge. Ready for the unknown?

Part of me gets very excited at the thought. The other part of me, not so much.

So I think I know what today will bring… a 2-mile walk in a few minutes… some writing… some sales work… and then the weekend! I am definitely ready for a weekend!

But more importantly than all that, is my lamp lit and am I ready if today were to be my last day on earth?

Yes. Yes, I am ready for that!

I am ready to see Jesus face to face.

I am ready to meet my maker.

I am definitely ready to be done with this painful, sinful, temporary world.

Rick Warren said recently that we should not make a bucket list of things we want to DO but instead, of what we want to BE.

For me the first thing on that list is to BE ready.

How about you?

    I really like that ” A Bucket list of things we want to BE”. So much more than just skydiving, It’s I want to have the type of person who has the courage to sky dive. For me the big BE is that I want to be the type of mom who guides her babes all her life. Not to leave when I think they don’t need me anymore but be the mom who is ready to jump back in when needed.

    That’s perfect – be the type of person who has the courage to sky dive! I think you already are that type of mom, if that’s at the top of your BE list! 🙂 Thanks for your comments.
