While rushing along to an impromptu, God-prompted, act of service this morning, I listened, truly listened, to lyrics with which I had sung along countless times:
"I dare you to move;
I dare you to move;
Like today never happened;
Today never happened before."
Whether or not the band intended this meaning, it truly hit me. "Today never happened before." My translation: Today is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. I have never before seen this day and it will never come again.
What will I do with it? What did I do with it?
Did I love my children with my every breath? Did I give all I have to this energy of living, of being a wife, a mother? Did my heart beat with the rhythm of my Savior? Did care for others impact my actions, thoughts, time?
I won't have this day back. When tomorrow is done, it will be done. Let's pray I don't waste it.
