Life is but a breath ...

Today was a relaxing Saturday, catching up on time with my hubby Mike.
We spent the morning walking Abbey( 0ur westie)..have not done that in about 6 months! (CPA's are consumed at work in the winter months!)
So I really enjoyed the special company today on my daily walk with Abbey. (She felt really spoiled and was a bit confused when Daddy asked her if she wanted to go for a walk!)
He never asks her that!!!
The afternoon was spent with Mom and Dad Riese at the Atl. airport.
We are sending them on a 4 day Cruise to the Bahama's for their 30th Anniversary.
That is somethingTHEY DESERVE! IT IS DEFINITELY SOMETHING to celebrate these days in society!I am so proud of the godly heritage Mike and I both have! Our parents have been great role models of what a godly marriage is all about! We hope to be at 30 years too, someday and will celebrate! They had a 4 hour layover here in Atlanta and it was fun to see them!
I was reminded today of how precious our life is...but this life here on earth is just temporary. My home is being prepared.
Today, my mom informed me via email of a college friend's spouse, passing away. He is now with the Lord. Mark Palmer- What an amazing testimony for the Lord. I am grateful for the time I had my freshmen year at BBC in Vibbard Dorm (with Jen-his First wife!) I know that one day their Son Micah will be in awe of the godly parents he had! My heart goes out to Amy (Mark's wife of 16 months) and all that she has in raising this little boy of Mark and Jen! What an honor and journey she has ahead.
In Psalms I was reminded of how precious our life is and we need to treasure the time we have here...but Live each day for the Lord.
Psalm 39:4-5
4 "Show me, O LORD, my life's end and the number of my days; let me know how fleeting is my life. 5 You have made my days a mere handbreadth; the span of my years is as nothing before you. Each man's life is but a breath."
Never take for granted the time with Family and friends. You never know how much you miss a loved one, till the Lord calls them home!
I treasure each day that I have with you Michael and I can not wait till your work schedule winds down...to see more of you!!!

So right you are. Sorry to hear about your friend.
Glad Abbey got out for a walk! She will not know what to expect next weekend.
