By thinking anxiously about the future, we forget our present such that we live neither for the present nor the future. We live as if we will never die, and we die as if we have never lived. Let's take each day as it comes, and live each day to the fullest. Remember, we are just passing through in this life.

The story is told of an American tourist who went to the city of Cairo, Egypt to visit a famous wise man.

The tourist was surprised when he saw this wise man living in a small, simple room full of books. The only pieces of furniture were a bed, a table, and a bench.

“Where is your furniture?” asked the tourist. The wise man suitably asked: And where is yours?”

“Mine?” Responded the tourist surprised. “I’m here only passing through”

“I also am just passing through.” Concluded the wise man. “Life here on earth is only temporal…yet, some live it as if they were going to stay here forever, forgetting to be happy. The value of something is not in how long it lasts, but in the intensity with which it is experienced.”

God has loaned us this life and He’s the one who will collect it, and so it is that; we are only passing through.

Remaining open to life, with its constant adventures and opportunities to grow, is the only way to reach our full potential.~unknown

Living the real thing, doesn’t consist of things at all, because things cannot truly satisfy. Only through God can we find real joy, true happiness, and the eternal fulfillment that only He can give

We need God's love to cleanse us from our mistakes and wrongdoings. We need His light to drive away all darkness. We need God's peace to fill and satisfy our hearts. Let's open the door of  our hearts and ask Him to come into our life and give us the gift of eternal life.

Life is like a sea. As vast as we can imagine, as deep as we can think. Let us not waste time measuring our life. We will not succeed. Instead, explore life. Reach for new harbors as we pass through different phases of life. Make friends on each destination. Let us enjoy our journey.
