Thoughts on life from Pat Oaks
We got home last night, and Jason and Gillian came by for a little while. Jason told us he smelled gas really strongly outside when he came in. It was coming from our heat/air unit. We immediately called KUB and believe it or not they immediately came out! They told us not to smoke or use our cell phones until after they got here. (It was hard to refrain, but we managed.) They said it was only exhaust and was nothing to worry about, but the unit should be serviced for cleaner exhaust and better performance.
While we were waiting for them to come, Jason told about a house he had considered renting one time and didn't. Not long after he looked at it there was gas leak and the house burned to the ground. As we sat there talking I thought to myself, this could be it. We could be sitting here talking and all of a sudden be in the presence of the Lord. He really knew what He was talking about when He said in the Bible not to worry about tomorrow because all we have is today. Actually all we have is this moment and it is fleeting.
This isn't meant to be doom and gloom. Just an encouragement to live as if this moment were your last. Now go outside and sniff around your heat and air unit, if it is gas!
