A Kiss from Rose | Life is a Gift, Appreciate Every Second

Life is a gift, a precious treasure that we often take for granted until it's hanging by a thread. Just two days ago, I found myself fighting for each breath as my airways began to close in reaction to a vaccine. In that moment, life's fragility became starkly apparent. Yet, by God's grace and mercy, I'm still here today. It was a blink of an eye between me and the end, a moment when everything could have changed forever.

As I lay there, I couldn't help but reflect on the people in my life—those who have stood by me, supported me, and loved me unconditionally, and those who I've overlooked or taken for granted. I realized that worrying and stressing over trivial matters were simply not worth the time. The things I often dismissed or neglected suddenly took on profound significance.

Throughout this ordeal, my faith in God never wavered. It was His hand that guided me through the darkness, reminding me of His unfailing love and presence even in the midst of uncertainty.

Now, I pose a question to you: If your life were to end today, what would you regret? What changes would you make? What truly matters to you, and how would you live differently?

Scripture tells us that "no man knows the day nor hour." It's a reminder to cherish every moment, to seize every opportunity to express love, gratitude, and forgiveness.

So, let's not wait until it's too late. Take the time to say the things you've been meaning to say, mend broken relationships, and cherish the ones you hold dear.

Remember to enjoy every second of the day, keep making memories, and never take a single breath for granted.

Let us pray:

Father, thank You for extending each day, for breathing life into my body, and for every favored thing You have done. I am grateful for Your unwavering presence, Your love, and Your mercy. Help me to live each day with intention, to appreciate the beauty of life, and to never lose sight of what truly matters. In Jesus’ name, amen.


“The devil has tried countless times to take me out of here, but God keeps reminding him, that I belong to Him. Touch not thy anointed!

God has something wonderful waiting for me.”
