It's important to plan for your future. To know you have one that is. You shouldn't put off the present but prepare for what will come. This is my poor attempt at being subtle, I'm running the risk of being misunderstood.
Eternity consumes the future as we understand it, present and the past as well. But right now, in our present situation, a decision of our eternity is before us. So it's important to plan for your eternity.
How you plan for it is up to you, but may I suggest some reading. The Holy Bible spells out the only Way to have an eternity in the presence of God. That Way is Jesus Christ. All other ways provide an eternity apart from the presence of God. The gift to a thinking mind is choice. So the choice is yours to make.

Most people love sleep, some don't. Regardless if you enjoy it or not, everyone sleeps. Some take advantage of every opportunity to sleep, others consume chemicals or practice rituals that deter slumber. I have never actually felt the need to not sleep. For the past couple of weeks, I've been getting four to five hours a night. Wednesday, at work, I became weak, pale, nauseous, clamy, fatigued, I was trembling. I felt bad. That was at the beginning of the day. I made it through, however I was miserable. That evening around six, I said my goodnights and passed out. My alarm woke me eleven hours later, and I still feel wonderful.
At twenty-one, I could work all day on three hours of sleep. At twenty-five, I could run all over town all weekend long on six hours of sleep, total, for the week end. At twenty-eight, quite a few things had caught up with me, and it was time for me to catch up on my sleep. Now in my mid-to late-thirties, I can not express enough the importance that sleep has to my calm, soothing, sense of well being.

My daughter accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior late Saturday night. She was baptized this morning at worship service. I recalled the baptisms of my wife and sons and my own when I was a child. I began to recount the events in my life since that time. I'm reminded of the importance of keeping focused on the will of God. I will do all I can to assist my wife and children keep that focus, as well as mine. I'm a very happy and thankful man.

Making the Right Choices

I find that I struggle day by day with making the right choices in life. A better description would be moment by moment. I've realized that I am not the only one with this problem, but I have to live with me like no one else could. It's became less difficult to make choices that are on the path in the Life I've chose to follow, but I always seem to get in the way. But there is a Way.

The Way is the Truth in Life. That Way, Truth, and Life is Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. By His blood, I am forgiven. By His victory over death, I am assured of a life with Him. He has allowed me to better love my wife and children. He is teaching me, through His word, how to love everybody. I'm not the best at it, and will always be in the position to improve, but I am trying. With Him, all things are possible. Only through Jesus can I get to the Father, and I sure do thank Him for that. I could not do it on my own.

What's important to me is my relationship with my God. He takes care of the rest. He can take care of you too. It is your choice. I believe an important one.
