Life Uncertainties And Remembering Our Dearly Departed

Life is uncertain. We'll never know when our time will be over.

Today is All Soul's Day. Though we must be remembering our dearly departed often, today is especially for them.

It sure hurt when we said our last goodbyes, and even more hurtful when we didn't get the chance to do so. Life goes on though. And our dearly departed will certainly want us to move on. To continue living and enjoy the privilege that has been taken away from them.

I have relatives and friends who have passed away. Some were taken at their prime, others while they are still too young to go.

This taught me that life is full of uncertainties. You can be healthy now and be struck down by some serious illness tomorrow. Which is why everyday is a good day to live with a purpose. Everyday is a good day to leave a good legacy.

You don't have to make a big impact to the world. Just touching one life is enough.

You don't have to live like Mother Theresa. Simply being there for a friend who is going through a tough time, saying hello to a stranger, doing your part in saving the environment count.

Life is full of uncertainties. But one thing is for certain: our lives on earth is but temporary. It is a preparation for something eternal. Or if you believe in reincarnation, a preparation for your next life on earth.

Let us remember and pray for the souls of those whom God has already called in His kingdom.

How are you preparing for it?

  1. It is true that we don't have to be Mother Theresa, thank goodness :) We really do just need to do small things which will lead to the big things. I believe in the afterlife and that there is something better than here, Here is our testing ground, I don't always pass but I keep trying :)

  2. Wonderful Post SuperLux :)

  3. This is a great reminder to remember those who have gone to Heaven and also to maximize each moment here on earth by spending time with loved ones and appreciating each moment.
