When death comes knocking on your door, are you ready to let it in?
Will you be able to say you’re good to go and leave your loved ones behind?
Have you by any chance done the things you always wanted before death comes?
Can you say staying on earth is all worthwhile?
How many people you made smiling? How many people you share your happiness with?
Have you told your loved ones how much they mean to you? Or you have to wait when death comes to tell them how much they mean to you?
Other than complaining and whining for what you despise and what you do not have every single day, are you able to thank God for the blessings even before death comes?
Did you ever tell someone how sorry you were for hurting them or you will just let them wait til forever to hear from you how much you regret hurting them?
This thought just came to me today when I saw “when death comes” somewhere on television.
I have been so silent all these times for I do not know what to share after all the things that happened lately.
Since it’s Lenten season, it reminded me of my experiences in the past from working for priest, the church and serving others.
It brought me back the whole time I was doing work for the church.. this cycle goes on every year. From January to December, all year through, I know how things are and memorize what to do (well not all of it but most of it).. and my not so favorite part is Lent.
Not that I hate the season but it’s seeing people go to church only because they have to.. sometimes humans take away the real essence of it.. it gets overrated and “too commercialized”. I am not complaining or anything.. just thinking out so loud. I have worked for the church some years ago and know what goes on there as well.
People repent only because it’s lent.. people cry every time they hear the 7 Last Words, people falling in line to kiss the foot of Jesus on the cross.. All these stuff for lent.. no offense meant for those who’s intentions are heartfelt and pure.
Do we really need to wait for lent season to ask for forgiveness and forgive people? Do we have to wait for lent to thank Jesus Christ for saving us? For getting Himself flogged and nailed to redeem our sins?
Why do we usually realise things when there’s only so little time to do it?
Why do we usually wait to cure it when we can prevent it?
This reminds me of the adage: A man who plans to pray on 11:00 dies at 10:30.
Some of us would only take action and realise to change more often than not when it’s too late. Why do we only appreciate when we only have the big ones? How about the lil blessings? How about the lil things?
I know, there are way lot questions that what I put on here that’s on my mind at the moment however I can’t put them into words so, that’s about it. 🙂
I am privileged and honoured to be alive, more humbled to have these experience and taught me a lot. I am not saying I am better than anyone.. I am just pondering and thinking out loud.
I hope everyone enjoy their time off and celebrate Easter with lots of love and blessings! ♥
