Yesterday was quite a landmark day for us, as it was my husband’s final day at work after agreeing to take early retirement/voluntary severance. To be honest I don’t think it’s really quite sunk in yet that hubby will not be working anymore although I’m sure after a few days of me getting up to go to work, and him still being in bed, will hep it sink in!

As for hubby, how does he feel? Well he’s got mixed feelings about it as ideally he wouldn’t have wanted to leave, however given the restructure of our department (we both work at the same place), and his health issues, it wasn’t really a difficult decision for him to make – Nor was it a difficult decision for me to agree with because I certainly hope that the opportunity for him to relax and chill a bit, will help him get healthier and fitter, though obviously the former is the priority!

So what now? Well hubby is planning on taking a few months out in the hope that his health improves and he can get a bit fitter too. Then he hopes to look for another job of some description, although whether that’ll be in IT or something completely different your guess is as good as mine!

Yes, our lives are going to change now that hubby is no longer working. I just hope and pray that this enforced change is just what hubby needs to get his health back on track.

I’d ask you to pray for my husband at this time as he tries to get used to retirement and how to fill his days, but most importantly, please pray that his health will improve.

Today is Saturday 21st May 2011, and today, according to some preachers in New York, the world will come to an end…

So is there any point in me writing today’s blog post? The world might have ended before it is published at 19.30! Then again if it hasn’t, I might disappoint my usual readers by failing to post anything today! So on I write…

If today is your last day on earth, how do you feel? Have you lived a good life? Have you any regrets? Are there things you wish you’d had a chance to say or do?

Although I doubt that today is the end of the world, maybe this is just the kind of thing we all need to remind us that we should take every opportunity we get to tell those we love how we feel, make peace with those whom we’ve fallen out with, take a chance and do the things you keep putting off for another time…after all you never know when today is going to be your last one.

In conclusion I want to leave you with the words of Mark 13:32-33 (NIV)

But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.
