Sorry for the light blogging today. I had, for those of you who don’t know, a health scare, but I am just fine. Now.
I have been working on a post concerning purgatory, but yesterday side lined me. So it remains a work in progress.
Anyhoo, yesterday was a wake up call in many ways. Deacon Larry had an elderly friend who always asked
“”Are you ready to die”
After yesterday my answer is not so much. My prayer yesterday was God have mercy; I am not near ready–at least not without an anointing for the journey.
But here I am today. False alarm. Praise God. But I realize how I have fallen short. Jesus tells us in the Gospel that we should always be on watch. We should always be ready.
I am not; I don’t think. Are you? Are you ready to die? Are you ready to meet Jesus?
There is a hell. I don’t know if it is inhabited by humans. But reading scripture I have to venture a guess that it is. Jesus warned us about hell often.
Are you ready to meet Jesus at your personal “end of time”.
Interesting sentiments, Susan. Glad you’re doing better and the scare was just that. I always feel that working around the sick & dying that I’d be ready if God called me tomorrow. However, your post gave me reason to pause. Do I think I’m ready because I WANT to be ready when that moment comes or is it because I TRULY am ready? Thanks for the food for thought.
