“If you do not have a regular place and a regular time to pray you do not have a prayer life.”
_Mitchell Tolle, 2012 SCCOG Campmeeting
My prayer time this morning hit an impasse.
For the last several years on the 19th of each month I made it a point to especially pray for my Aunt Yvonne (my mother’s sister).
But since last month Aunt Yvonne has met her Maker and is beyond my care and prayers. Now there is an empty space on my monthly prayer list.
As I reflected on this earlier this morning it reminded me that there indeed comes a time when it is too late.
Too late to say, “I love you.”
Too late to speak, listen, touch, hug, help, reach out, give, receive, apologize, forgive, sympathize, empathize, celebrate, laugh, cry, share…pray.
The ONE THING for today: Mortality is the reminder that there indeed comes a time when it will be too late. There is a “Do-it-now” in every day and to fail to do it can result in a lifetime of regret.

I just wanted you to know how much it has always meant to me that you kept my mom in your prayers, my dear cousin!
Absolutely! The longer I live the more I realize the value of family and the need to treasure each one.
I thank God to direct me to your page.
I got more than knowledge.

Please pray for me I got to have a shoulder replacement
Rebecca, just like God often uses preachers and teachers to help us be healthy emotionally and spiritually, I believe He often uses doctors and nurses to bring about his healing. I pray both for your and the medical professionals that they will preform to the best of their ability.
