The brevity of life

I was reading about the tragic accidental death of Stephen Curtis Chapman's daughter last night, and talking about this some with a friend, and really got to thinking last night. Noone on this earth
knows when its time for them to go (not counting those who take their own lives), and our lives could be over in the blink of an eye. We have to live every day, every hour, every MINUTE, with meaning, because it could be our last. How many times have we screwed up, and had the chance to rectify our mistake? Well, what if, just what if, you didn't have that chance. We need to watch our words, choose them carefully, and use them sparingly to make them count. Make every act be out of Christ's love, and control our frustration, our impatience. Because we could never get the chance to take it back.
