Life Can Change in an Instant

I haven't been on here for a while but wanted to drop in today to ask everyone to remember those in Joplin, Missouri, who were hit by a tornado yesterday evening.  There were many lives lost and a lot of property damage.  This disaster serves as a reminder to the rest of us...Life can change in an instant!  For those whose lives were lost, I can only hope they were ready to meet their Maker.  For those who remain, may we always be ready.  I'm sure when those people of Joplin woke up yesterday they weren't prepared for the way life changed for them before sundown.  Possibly there were angry words spoken during the day that hadn't been forgiven and now the time has past and there is no longer time for that conversation to set things straight.  Too many times we put things off thinking we will get to it tomorrow.  Maybe we need to stop and think more often "What if tomorrow doesn't come?"  Don't put off that kind deed, that kind word.   What  things would you change about your life right now if you knew "life would change in an instant" by sunset this evening?  Something to ponder today. 

Continue to pray for the people of Joplin, Missouri.
