What a precious few days I spent with a former roommate and dear friend from nursing school. Over the years we kept in touch and even traveled great distances to get together with our husbands and families.
This however, was the first time to spend quality time alone. This was also the first time we’d been together since her husband’s passing. It was a time to reflect on memories and happier days. We talked, we walked on the beach, we shed some tears, we laughed hard and most importantly, we prayed together.
On our last morning together we walked along the beach and shared the Lord with tourists as we went. She let me know from the start that this was way outside her comfort zone. But Hey! I still had a stack of tracts I didn’t want to bring home! She was a good sport and we did have fun!
We met lots of friendly people—interesting people from different countries. Two even invited us to go with them on a fast banana boat! Would we have had such an invitation had we not been adventurous? God is so good!
I’m glad we used our last day doing something so important. After all, we are all sinners and we all need the Lord. Everywhere we go, everyone we see is going to spend eternity in hell—IF they don’t have a Savior—and there’s only ONE.

[This life is temporary. This life is short. When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever. Where will the “real you” live? Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?
