We never know when life will end. We get up, go about our day as we did yesterday and plan to do tomorrow. We know that people die, yet we do not really let the thought enter our minds that someday it will be someone we love or us. The older we get the more we think about dying.
Death comes unexpected at any time. There is no age, no point in life where we are safe. The younger we are the less we think about it. Yet, we know that newborns, babies, children, teens, young adults die. Death does not wait until we are old. It can come at any time on any day.
Babies and very young children are safe in God’s care. Once we have reached the age of reason, we are responsible for our choices and actions. It is important to have our house in order, as much as that may mean at any point in life. Most of all have faith that goes beyond this earthly life. Make peace with God.
Life is fragile…handle with care.
