On borrowed time

I'll never know why it had never struck me before. I am living on borrowed time. We all are.

Not because of misfortune or illness or fate. No. We are all God's children and here but for a while.... loaned out to this earth at this place in this era. Our home base is with God: where we were before our consciousness, before our birth, our families of origin or choice. Before any of our accumulated memory.

It seems only right that while we are here we enjoy what this life affords and what we can contribute to it. Living it full and overflowing with gratitude and grace, no reason or room for regret.

So that when our borrowed time is up we leave happy and/or content to have spent the time wisely and well. Few of us know what tomorrow may bring, if - for us - it comes at all.

Put into that perspective, I can decide to live not only with the adventures this opportunity brings me each day.... but also with the knowledge that I will have a wonderful place - and a loving God - to return to.
