Time!! It just keeps passing on. I believe I have "seized the day" during these three years. We have moved back closer to family and have celebrated many special days in the lives of our grandchilren and "kids" (all grown now).

In the Dead Poets Society, the teacher, John Keating says of the students who went before him, "Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? Because, you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? - - Carpe - - hear it? - - Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary."

Is this doable? I say yes! There are lots of ways that people try to seize the day, but I believe it is only by trusting God for His special and perfect plan in our lives that it is possible. After over 35 years of allowing Jesus to guide me, I can truthfully say that he can make our lives extraordinary. Lord help me be extraordinary today. The thing is, I may not know it, but I trust you for it!

Life is very good because He lives in my heart!
