Daily Bible Reflections - May 9,2013


A WHILE THAT LASTS

 
“What is this ‘little while’ of which he speaks?” – John 16:18
 
Just over one year old, Dax Locke was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. His parents pursued all available solutions but after a few months, doctors announced that there was no hope for a cure. Dax would die in four to eight weeks.
At that point, his parents took Dax home, determined to let him enjoy the remaining days of his life. They brought out the Christmas tree and decided that, from that day on, every day would be Christmas Day.
When the neighbors found out, they, too, set up their Christmas decors. Others followed suit until the whole town was lit up with lights. When the media covered the story, the whole nation joined in. Moved by the sight of a frail yet happy baby, Christmas came early to hundreds of homes and so did the sharing the season usually brings.
Dax proved that we don’t have to live long in order to inspire others and make a difference. Each of us is given “just a little while” to follow God’s will on earth. It’s not that complicated. We just need to learn to love Him and share that love with others. Cecil Lim (cez_lim@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: What do we need to accomplish to make our “little while” last an eternity?
 
Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what You want me to be and becoming that person. (Saint Therese of the Child Jesus)
 
St. Catherine of Bologna, pray for us.
