Some Days Never Come
"Someday, I can take her on a cruise."
"Someday, I will have the time to call and chat."
"Someday, the children will understand why I was so busy."
But you know the truth, don't you? You know
even before I write it. You could say it better than I.
Some days never come.
And the price of practicality is sometimes
higher than extravagance.
But the rewards of risky love are always greater
than its cost.
Go to the effort. Invest the time. Write the
letter. Make the apology. Take the trip. Purchase the
gift. Do it. The seized opportunity renders joy.
The neglected brings regret."
~Max Lucado
I tend to be a procrastinator so this was a reminder I need to take to heart.
Hope your Sunday is an enjoyable one.

This made me think. I am not a procrastinator, but sometimes I am not *purposeful* enough. Thank you for this!

Thanks for this reminder this morning, Judy. I tend to be a procrastinator too.
Your new blog look is so beautiful. It also seems so appropriate for you. When I think of what I know of you through your blog, what comes to mind is a lady who has a real talent for creating and giving gifts to friends and loved ones. Also a lady who excels in the grandmother department. So, the little girl's hand holding a bouquet of flowers seems to capture the essence of you, dear Judy.

Yes, we all tend to get busy and miss out on important things in life.
Reminders are always good.

Have a wonderful day!

What a wonderful word for this Sunday morning! I love Max Lucado, he says it so clearly.

I'm trying to catch up on some of my favorite blogs, so am reading through postings from while I was gone... yours is always one of my favorites!

Have a great Sunday!

I just started a new blog for recording inspirational quotes and scripture verses.
I am calling it “In the Garden.”
The hymn is my inspiration...!
I must include that quote by Max Lucado. SO TRUE. Your blog is always so inspiring and filled with love.
PS Hopefully you will get an email from me to which you can respond with your address. Sorry for being such a pain! Hope you aren't thinking I wish I'd never entered that dopey giveaway! :)

I'm sure your thoughtfulness will make your friends feel special. Funny I've bee working on a post about imitation for a few weeks now... used the same quote.And the cloud pictures were amazing!

Your post is an extension of mine in a way...about restoring relationships and not knowing about the next time you may share with someone. It's so true...we just have to stop and make it happen...forgive, makeup, write a note...thanks for have a wonderful way of sharing.

Love ya, Connie
