Christian Reflections Placeholder

“I’m going to love you like it’s the last day of my life.”

Those are the words to a country song by Phil Vassar. He wrote them to his wife after he attended the funeral of a close friend. As he was reflecting on his own life (as funerals often cause us to do), he thought of the love he has for his wife and how often he had neglected to tell and show her. So he wrote a song (as songwriters tend to do) saying that his goal from then on was to love her with a sense of urgency and priority that comes if it’s “the last day of my life.”
