It’s August 3, 2020. Do you know where your heart is?
As of today, August 3, in the year 2020, I’ve written somewhere between 70,000 to 100,000 words about the Rhyme and Reason for life. And that’s because, every day so far, I’ve shared something to be optimistic and hopeful about. And I know that sort of talk isn’t cool or trendy these days. But I don’t care. Because I know something about life that most people in the world want nothing to do with.
Before I explain, check out these tidbits about August 3 of this year.
Today is the 216th day of the year. And that means there are 150 more days till the end of 2020. And this is the 31st Monday. So, I guess it’s the 31st time millions of people are getting up with the Monday blues. And here in America, this is the 32nd week of the year. Plus, this is the 44th day of Summer, which, if you’re counting, is a little less than halfway through the season.
I know the birthstone for today (and this month) is Peridot. And I pay attention to that because August is also the birth month of my beautiful wife, Elgielene. So, it’s important to know such details. Mom didn’t raise no fool in me.
Now, back to my initial assertion.
Why would I say I know something about life that most people in the world want nothing to do with? Short answer. Because I do. And that “something” is its source.
Life didn’t arise from non-life. That’s absurd in the highest order.
But millions of people (and probably billions) either believe it did or they believe something else just as absurd. And either way, they’re putting the blissful contentment of their soul at risk. Not risk like in some silly superhero movie. I’m talking real, unadulterated, eternal risk.
And risk don’t get no riskier than that.
But what does it matter? Right? As long as I’m content with my choice. And as long I’m secure in the knowledge of my final destination, who cares what happens to all the rest?
Here’s why I share what I share.
Because I care.
And here’s why I say what I say.
Because The Way
To eternal life is narrow.
Truth is straighter than an arrow,
And you’ll find out
Either way. It might be today.
