Amirah, My Darling Angel (continued)

Tomorrow isn’t promised. Not to you, me or anybody. Sure we all flap our gums about how short life is but you know what, life is as long as it needs to be. And as heartbroken as well are about Mirah suddenly passing, we ALL need to understand that it was her time.
From early on in life, I was taught that we are all sent here to carry out a specific purpose and once you’re finished, you return home. This isn’t a debate of differing religions so when I use “God” feel free to drop in your own names for him; Jah, Allah, Buddha, Jehova, etc.
One of my brothers and I were talking a few nights ago about this concept of fulfilling your purpose and then leaving from this earth; both admitting that we weren’t the least bit sure of why we were actually sent. The conversation quickly shifted to how so much unity was birthed from us all losing a prominent person in our lives, Mirah. And that’s when it hit me. What if we aren’t supposed to know our purpose while we’re living? What if at the end of your life when you finally meet God, he looks to you and says, “THIS, is why I sent you.” Really, think about it.
God does nothing without good reason, and he makes NO mistakes with who he calls and when he calls them. Its out of our own selfishness that we wish a person could have stayed longer to be a part of our lives, our dreams, our hopes — and I guess that’s just human nature. What I want you all to understand is this, as much as we’d like to think we do, we actually don’t have the luxury of time. Live your life in a way that makes you happy and those around you happy to know you.
And when our time does come, we’ll finally understand why we were sent here, and like Amirah, be able to see just how strong an impact our lives left on this world.
