Life is short. I’ve become so sensitive to this fact lately. I’ve caught myself breathing the breathtaking moments a little deeper, soaking up the joy a bit longer, and sometimes just so very grateful to be alive and in the present. There is so much I don’t know yet. And there is much I have come to realize whether I wanted to or not.

Whether it be 4 months or 40 more years that I have left here on this earth, I want to live life to it’s fullest. I’ve wasted too much time, but at the same time I’ve invested a lot of precious time into the ones I love. I just want to spend more time with these beautiful people I call my children, my family, my husband, my loved ones.

The years fade into memories so quickly. Here and now…I have the present. I am still breathing and growing every day inside. My past, present, and future is surrounded by God’s presence….He is with me. Living in His love IS Life to it’s fullest.

About Lisa Tompkins

Like my blog name suggests- I’m striving to be fully alive. Our Messiah Yahshua (Jesus) came so we could “have life and have it in abundance.” There’s so much to see, learn and experience in this blessed life! John 10:10- “A thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.” (Yahshua/Jesus)
