Sunflower~A~Day 14

"You've been halfway living your life for too long . . .
when it's time to die, go ahead and die,
and when it's time to live, live.
Don't sort-of-maybe live, but live like you're going all out,
like you're not afraid."
~August Boatwright~
from The Secret Life of Bees
Sue Monk Kidd

It is good and fitting for one to eat and drink,
and to enjoy the good of all his labor
in which he toils under the sun all the days of his life
which God gives him;
for it is his heritage.
Ecclesiastes 5:18

Live like you mean it.

When life is good,
enjoy it.
Praise God.
When it is bad,
lean into God.
Praise God.
Gratitude for blessings.
Gratitude for His strength.
