There will come a time in your life when you will look back on the past as being more significant than the future.
When this times comes, and it surely will, will you look back and remember times when you joked and laughed with love in your heart, when you sweated and pulled mightily as a part of something worthwhile and constructive?
Will you fondly remember the look of joy on a person’s face as you gave to them of yourself, every last sweated drop of your soul?
Or, will you look back and remember, with bitter regret no doubt, on conflicts you perpetuated, judgements you heaped on others, bitter feuds and disagreements that held you separate from people who you might otherwise have called your kin?
These now are those years from which you will fashion your remembrances.
This is it.
This is when you get to give and when you make your bed.
You shall reap what you sow. You are making your bed.
This, right now is all you have to make a difference which will last with you in your heart.
This is your future experience; it may be sweet and you may make it hell.
That is your God given choice.
Make of it what you will.
