It’s easy, keep breathing. When we lose a loved one, as much as it hurts, we have to use everything in our power to continue forward. It’s hard, especially when it’s a loved one. But, it is what it is. This is why I started the “Life Knows No Bounds” series. I wanted to address the issue of life. The matter is life. It is what it is. Life keeps on going whether you are a part of it or not. Sometimes when we lose someone we don’t care. We just wanna die as well. But life will argue, “Well then, life isn’t for you.” But we have to think further than that. Who among us would tell other loved ones, “When I die, bury me, then knock yourself off so you too wont be.” I would never wish that for anyone. Life is for living, LIVE!!! I had mine, now, go live yours. Some die at birth never having a chance to live. Some die somewhere between thither and there. Some die old and most of us say we want this but we cry and complain all the way. We don’t know when our time is up, this is why we should pray and live like there’s no tomorrow. That doesn’t mean sin beyond control, it means enjoy life and look on the brighter side of things, for our day as well will come; and people will cry over us. But we want them to carry on and so, for God sake, we must carry on as well. Remember, the greatest gift God has given you is your life, it is not your’s to take, it’s not your’s to ruin. So, live life, laugh, smile, hug someone, shake someone’s hand. Get to know someone different from yourself and appreciate their difference, and love yourself for who you are. Just live, live all the while; and thank your keeper, your lord for the opportunity to have life, have a li’l taste of some things you wouldn’t ordinarily have, some people you might not necessarily know; and see some places you wouldn’t ever see had the Creator of heaven and earth not given you life.
“Lord of the heavens, earth and all that is between and around them, please forgive us our trustpasses and aid us; help us to be more patient and have acceptance of your will. Help us to realize that you made us different that we might get to know one another, and help us to lean on one another during good and trying times so that we have strength to carry on when the devil does what he does and the sinner’s sin weigh heavy upon us as well. Protect us from the evil doers and provide for us an out and a straight path to your mercy. To the God of Noah, Abraham, Moses and Muhammed we pray, amen/ameen.
