"How You Live" by Point of Grace

For this week's song I've chosen "How You Live" by Point of Grace.

I have been reminded this week of how we never know how much time we have on this earth. Sunday I found out that one of my classmates passed away. Steven was with his wife in Cancun and took a nap and didn't wake up. There are not many other details available at this time and a lot of questions.

News of Steven's death spread quickly among our classmates. I was asked to pass the information along since I keep the email addresses for class reunions and such. Our little class was always very close so this has come as a shock to so many. I believe this was the first death of a classmate.

There is some great advice in this song. I've been reminded on the shortness of life and the importance to make the most of every moment, telling people you love them, and not taking life for granted.

Please join me in prayer for Steven's family.

Have a day of blessings!

I am so sorry to hear of the sudden loss of your classmate. I have always adored this song. A ladies trio sang it at our church Sunday morning. The words are powerful!

Oh Bethany,

I'm so sorry for your loss and I will be praying for his family. I hope you don't mind but I'm going to borrow this song for my post tomorrow.

My family is struggling with how ill I have been this last week. My children have been especially saddened because one night I passed out so they have been frightened. I am trying to keep them understanding that "how I have lived" has made me happy.

God bless you, sweet friend. Big hugs to you!
