If You Were to Die Tonight, What Would You Rather Do The Whole Day?

andreasmoser.wordpress.com
ON LIFE. The other day, I read how a number of old, dying people were asked what one thing they regretted about in life now that they were dying.

Accordingly, majority of the answers were about not trying to do a lot of good things while they had the youth and energy.

Then the article encouraged readers to do all the fun they could now while they were strong---like traveling, boating, trekking, scuba diving, bungee jumping, kayaking, and other crazy stuff.

Probably.

But what if you had less than 24 hours left?

I for one would ask my family and close friends to gather by my bed and talk about some of the good old days we had and, most importantly, about Jesus. To me, that beats all the fun and adventure you could think of in this world.

Well, it'd be lots better if you could do the same while in vacation in Palawan, Batanes, Switzerland, New Zealand or the Bahamas if you had that much money. Much better if you could treat them for free as well.

My point is, whatever it is you'd want to do and could do if you had only less than 24 hours left, do it now while you have a full life ahead of you and the energy to do it, too. Don't they say how we ought to live our lives like every day were our last?

Treat them to vacation trips each day? Well, why not, if you're someone like Donald Trump, Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg who earn millions or billions of residual income each day.

And probably, I'd include buying and reading as many books each day as possible, watching good movies in our home family theater, trying out different guns at the shooting range.

In the meantime that I'm not yet rich (and definitely I'm not dying, by God's grace), what I really love doing is spend time with God, my family and some friends, especially casually talking about Jesus with them.

But, how about if you have only 3 minutes? Well, to me, the best way to spend your last 3 minutes on earth is these 3 things:

1. Sincerely repent of your sins.
2. Receive Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
3. Surrender your life to him 100 percent.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
