In the beginning of time a man and a woman were given a gift, the breath of life. This gift that is breathed in and out each day is often forgotten as a gift because it comes so naturally. It is so abundant that no one ever really says that they need more breath. Instead the things that people say they need more of are things that never seem to give life. Who ever said when they won the lottery that they now have a purpose? No one, why? Because as long as we have breath, we have a purpose that drives us to keep breathing in and out. Instead of abusing the gift of life and always running so hard that our lungs are burning, let the breath of life keep humility in our hearts because we never know when our last breath will be. Life is a precious gift, one worth more than all the gold in the world, but it is often wasted and burnt up with so many meaningless things. If you were asked each day what gift you received, something that you could not give yourself, you could at least say you took another breath, but I'm sure you could name a few more things than that too. If you have children of your own or in your life, you know how much of a gift they are and you could not imagine that gift being taken away from you. Tonight there are children though that struggle to hold on to their breath of life, and parents that would give their last breath to let their child live on instead. Watch this music video and realize that your life is as a breath that comes in and goes out and then it is gone forever and remember that with every gift there is a Giver.
