We can only enjoy the life we have, not the life we wish we had.
We can work to make this world a better place but not enjoying our own life will not make that happen.
Seeking our own pleasure is not the goal, but to not enjoy and share the gifts we do have is to live among the walking dead.
Love well until you die...or what is the point?
When I keep my eyes on God, I can get out of the boat...I can live the life I have, not the life I wish I had...I can work to make a positive difference in my sphere of influence, not remain paralyzed by the pain I see around me...I can let God change me into the person He created me to be. I have a choice about all this, and I choose life.
