May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer- Ps.19:14
Live life to the fullest
Today is March 9, at 3:00 this afternoon it’s exactly 7 years since i’ve escaped death from a car accident. From march 2002 and until now i have to deal everyday on the emotional pain, physical difficulties and depression brought about by this accident. I was deprived with so many things and opportunities because of what happened to me. That’s because i’m now partially disabled, struggling everyday to bear the physical pain caused by wearing prosthesis leg.
But in spite of the hardships and trials that came my way i’m still thankful to God for giving me another chance to live. Another chance to be with my kids, to grow old with them, to enjoy and cherish every moments with them, and to be their guide and comfort every single day.
As i ponder on the death of Francis Magalona who died at 44 and when i almost died at the age of 31, am i right to think that life is indeed too short? That any moment we could all die in a way that we do not know. Francis was diagnosed with leukemia just 7 or 8 months ago, i was on my way home after work when the fatal accident happened. Death strikes anytime, anywhere, in any way, so every moment of our lives, every single day isn’t it right to live life to the fullest?
