What Are You Waiting for? Get Going!

Now I Lay me down to sleep...”

How many human beings would love the luxury of a good nights sleep, but cannot due to: The ravages of sickness and disease; perhaps sleepless nights keeping watch in the midst of their war-torn communities; or as traumatized victims of weather and climatic upheavals rendering them homeless.

Wallace in 1975, three years after he was paralyzed in an assassination attempt. In his later years, Wallace reached out to civil rights activists and black churches to ask forgiveness.

Not widely reported outside of his home state, but Governor George Wallace; the radically racist Governor of Alabama (circa 1960’s); repented and spent his last days in philanthropic endeavors inclusive of all-Black Churches whose members came to forgive,  love and accept him as “Just another sinner saved by grace, like the rest of us.”

” If I should die before I wake…”

There are no ‘Do-Over’s

The Psalmist says our lives are as a ‘Vapor’, a mist. We are as delicate and substantive as the morning fog.

We interact with one another in life as members of a grand concert in a huge orchestra.

We take center-stage in our life-solo as the Director and lead performer until we bow out.

Be ‘Awake’ to what is truly your important part in this concerto.

Play it for all you’re worth!

“… I pray the Lord my soul to take…”

Be Blessed!
