From Got to Get

I atteneded part of the Mississippi Baptist Convention this week. The highlight for me was a testimony given by Sammy Gilbreath of the Alabama Baptist Convention. Dr. Gilbreath has a terminal heart condition and does not know how long he has to live. He is a living example of the One Month to Live concept. He said that he has learned to: celebrate the promise of life, value spiritual blessings over physical things, value a clear conscience, and value remembering. The most powerful thing he said was that he no longers says, "I've got to..." He now says, "I get to..."
I'd like to live with that kind of joy and gratitude.
