Calvary Chapel Marysville, WA
This morning in church, Pastor Dave posed the question: what would you do if you knew how long you had left to live? Let's say you knew you had two weeks. What would you do with those two weeks?

Me too. :)
Gosh there are so many variables but assuming I am healthy and living my normal day to day life, I would first, obviously get my “business” in order. Then I would record a message to each one of my six granddaughters, telling them individually of how they blessed my life, how they made me laugh, made me cry, the times I worried over them and the times I thought I’d burst with pride. I would tell them of how I prayed for them; and especially of the love Jesus has for them, what waits for them in heaven. Then I would eat ice cream.
I would take a couple of days and visit my friends and tell them of the impact they had on my life (much crying would be involved). Then I would hunker down with my family and just spend those last days with them. And I think we would be eating ice cream, too :)
Okay, spending time with the family and writing/taping messages to them I would also do. I'd probably do a recorded message of some type for when they are adults that they could listen to later.I would also make sure they know how to cook some food and I'd arrange with all of you to take care of my family! ;)I think I'd skip the ice cream and go right for cheesecake since I rarely get it. I'd also eat a whole bunch of crab and shrimp since I have a shellfish allergy and it could kill me anyway. (But I'd eat the cheesecake first! I wouldn't want to die before I got some! lol)I might even try going up in a hotair balloon. I'm not to fond of heights but if I was going to die anyway it shouldn't matter to me then right? (Or I'd go skydiving. I've always wanted to do that but the height thing...well, you know.) :)
Having lost my Mom, I know the hurt that can be left behind so I would want to live my last days with meaning and purpose with those that I love. But it would be with the sun on my face and my toes in the sand. And find a good home for Izzy and MacGregor, I am starting a list now, because two weeks is not nearly enough time to interviews and do background checks.
