One day a farmer’s wife died very suddenly as she went about

her normal duties. Her husband was a hardworking,

closemouthed man. Just before the funeral he went to the

minister, took from his pocket a small shabby book, and handed it

to him. The farmer said, “It’s a book of poems. She really liked

them. Would you read one in the service? She always wanted us

to read them together, but I never seemed to have time. You

know how it is on the farm. There are always so many things to

do. But recently I just got to thinking---you don’t get it into your

head what time is really for until it’s too late, do you?”

If you knew he had only 24 hours left to live, what would you

do? Whatever your answer, do it today!
