The year that death bit

Ephesians 5:17 Don’t act thoughtlessly, but try to find out and do whatever the Lord wants you to. 

Death has taken too many people who have been part of my life during the last year. 

All were young except for my Mother. 

This week another childhood family friend took his last breath after a long illness. I had wished him a blessed new year of life in mid-September. 

 I want to yell, "God, please stop!"  

But I know better. 

Instead,

 it occurs to me that I should be living each and everyday with that last breath in mind.  

One day, I will close my eyes and breathe a last Blanca breath. 

And I will move into eternity with my ancestors. 

While I'm here, I resolve to: 


  • Not keep grudges
  • Smile at strangers
  • Be friendly to all
  • Care about my neighbors
  • Love helpless animals, and 
  • Listen compassionately 

 Because I know...

this earthly life is not all that there is...

I must make each new year that God gives me 

matter 

because

Life is to be lived passionately 

until I see the face of Jesus.
