What immediately comes to mind is….After all is said & done.
Is that not when it all counts?
After it is all said & done…..
- did I give it my all?
- did I try my best?
- did I love hard?
- did I forgive?
- did I do all that I knew to do?
- did I love Him with all my heart, with all my mind & all my soul?
It is the after that makes the now all worth it.
I read this quote by Erma Bombeck this morning,
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, “I used everything You gave me.”
Because after this life is gone, that is all that will truly matter.
