My father was killed at 38. It changed me forever.

Our car from the accident where my father was killed. It’s a miracle some survived.

July, 1963.

On a dusty Saskatchewan road. My father was killed.

My life changed forever.

I went through dark years. I felt I’d been abandoned by God. 

Years later, God changed my life.

When that happened, I knew that He gave me a gift.

A gift of life. A gift of love. A gift of purpose.

Every day was a gift. It still is.

When I outlived my father’s 38 years, my heart was especially stirred.

I determined to honour each day as a gift from God.

We each have a choice. We can choose one: A life of purpose. Or a life of complacency.

How about you? 

Who have you outlived?

Each day is a gift.

Let’s live it with purpose. Let’s change the world.

We only have one earthly life.

This is it.

“So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.” – Ps 90:12
