Life is so short.


Last night I recieved a phone call from my mum. It seems that my grandfather (her dad) has been admitted into the hospital due to internal bleeding that thy cannot stop at the moment. My mum said that it was most likely an ulsar that went out of controll. They need now to take him off all his meds in order thicken his blood, including the med that kees him from having strokes. If that doesn't help, then today he will be going into surgery.

This sucks, mostly because my grandfather never liked to talk about spiritual things. He had a somewhat religios background, but I am not sure how personal it was. We don't know if he is a believer or not. I realize now that life is way too short not to take every opportunity you can to share your faith. Especially with those closest to you. When it al comes down to it, what really is stoppinng us from sharing with them? Is it the fear of rejection? So what! Some things are more important than you pride or our feelings. Someone's salvation may be hanging in the balance here, and we are not garaunteed tomorrow.

I don't know what I am thinking right now. i just pray that the Lord's will be done and that my grandfather know Jesus before he meets Him face to face.
