Today I met my dear friend Laura for lunch. Laura's oldest son, Dylan, recently passed away. He was 21. My heart breaks for this precious family. However, as I visited with Laura I was reminded of D.I.M.E.:Does it matter eternally? So much of what we stress over just really doesn't matter. God and people matter most. Sometimes I get so busy with the daily chores that the most important things fall to the wayside: time with God, my children, husband, parents, family and friends. Of course we all have responsibilities, but sometimes there is a greater priority. God tells us in Matthew 22:37 that all the law and prophets are summed up in this; love the Lord your God with all your heart mind and soul and love one another. I want to encourage you to take a deep breath and slow down. I want to encourage you to take time with God, hug your family, listen to your kids talk, kiss your spouse and encourage your friends. In one moment your life could change forever. Have a great evening enjoying your blessings!
