HAPPY & BLESSED EASTER

HAPPY & BLESSED EASTER

IS THIS A GOOD DAY OR IS THIS MY LAST DAY ON EARTH?

IS THIS A GOOD DAY OR IS THIS MY LAST DAY ON EARTH?

Friday morning the moon followed me all the way to work.
I pulled out of  my garage, looked up and a HUGE moon was in the western sky.  It was daylight and there was the gray and white moon still visible.  I  was going a westerly direction to work that morning and every turn I made the moon was in front of me 
or following me on the left.
Not far from my home is a country lane in the middle of the city and I take that road every chance I get.  It's so peaceful and country.  So, I turned onto Tupelo Lane and there was a beautiful deer grazing in the high grass.  She raised her head and looked back at me for the five or ten seconds it took to approach and pass her.  It was a beautiful scene.  I have always known there were deer in this area, but can't remember ever seeing one in many years.
The first ten  minutes of leaving my house were so nice, peaceful and unusual.
It occurred to me:
"Is this a good day or is this my last day on earth?"
For years I have paid attention to birthdays.  I usually ask people, "when is your birthday?".
I just want to know.
And, when someone famous dies I check Google to see when they were born.
Most of the time I notice a person dies within the quarter just before or just after their birth.
"For everything there is a season?"
If someone dies out of that quarter I notice it was murder, suicide or for older people,  maybe they didn't really know the exact time of their birth. Or, maybe there's a reason to hide the time of their actual birth.  Getting pregnant out of wedlock, etc.
So, Friday did turn out to be a very good day.
I feel blessed that I can see the beauty of nature in our world and our universe.
