Sudden Death

June 7, 2010

I am not talking about a conclusion to a tied game.  I am talking about actually dieing, quickly and unexpectedly.  This past weekend in our area there was a fatal motorcycle accident.  In the Midwest there were tornados resulting in seven deaths.  I suspect that worldwide, there are many who died suddenly, and unexpectedly.  My heart goes out to the families that must deal with the sudden, tragic, loss of life.

It also makes me think.

Do we live our lives in such a way that we are ready, literally, to meet our maker?

Do we appreciate the time that we have on this earth?

Do we appreciate the time that we have with family and friends?

Are we making good choices?

Are we prepared for life…or death?

Who knows what the future holds?

Sudden death is not a game, but a shocking reality that some people must face.  For most, life goes on…but how will we live that life?
