I wonder – next year at this time, just what I will have gone through?
I wonder what challenges and obstacles I will have faced. Will I be stronger and wiser – or will I feel a little beaten down and need time to heal?
I wonder what new and exciting things that I never would have guessed would happen – did; all because my Lord wanted to bless me and love on me.
I wonder what loved ones I will have had to say goodbye to – whether from illness or accidents?
I wonder what dreams will have been realized in my life. Will I have started to dream new ones? Will I have said goodbye to old ones that are no longer important to me?
I wonder if I will use my time more wisely or still take it for granted?
How many lost opportunities will I regret letting pass me by?
How often will I look at my kids and know my time with them at home is that much shorter?
What will my health be like in a year? Better – or – worse?
Will I be more confident?
I wonder what new friends I will meet and wonder how I ever lived life without them?
What prayers will finally be answered? What new prayer requests will weigh heavily on my heart?
Life is so short. It is but a vapor. We don’t realize that on a day-to-day basis. We forget. We take it for granted. Unless we stop long enough to pause, think, ponder, and wonder….
