This morning my Mom referred to “the other shoe dropping”…regarding my Dad’s health. Dad is fighting to live a good life. He has bravely pushed through the last 25 years, fighting cancer and its aftermath.
I’m beginning to realize what it means to push through life. When I was younger, I wasted a lot of it…not realizing that Life is Short!
Now in my fifties, I’ve developed a focus that cannot be surprised by life’s random assaults.
Of course life is not random, as the Creator and Sustainer of it has a purpose for every part. Even still, life must be attacked and fought for to be realized at its best.
I do hope my Dad’s shoes stay “on” much longer…even if Mom has to remind him where they are sometimes.
“So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim Your might to another generation, Your power to all those to come.” (Psalm 71:18/ESV)
