“Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.”
 (Ps 95:7,8 and Hebrews 4:7).

As I have been writing my full head-trauma book, with my editor in Cincinnati, I continue to learn more and more about the wreck and things that happened before and after it.

 The other day, I was looking through one of my files online and voila!, I ran up on a poem that Heather had written sometime before that June 18, 2002.

If Today Were Your Last Day

By: Heather Folden


If today were your last day,

What would you do?

Would you spend time smoking,

And drinking too? Or

Would you tell your parents that you love them

And you’ll see them soon?


If today were your last day,

Would you hang out with your friends

As long as you could?

And forget about the people who are lost

Like most people would.

Or would you witness to everyone you could,

Like true Christians should.


Every Christian is responsible for telling

As many lost people about Jesus as they can

Otherwise, who’s gonna do it for them

When you are the only one who can understand

Just how much they need God,

Because you are the one in the Master’s plan.


If today were your last day,

Would you spend it sinning or witnessing?

If you look to Jesus you’ll find no problems

Seeing what God is saying,

And you’ll then find out the role

A true Christian should be playing

As they share the love of Christ

Through everything they are saying.


If today were your last day,

Would you witness without any slack?

Could you say you lived your life to the fullest

And don’t have to look back?

God’s love will help you share Jesus’ life

To all those around you who have pain and strife.

What would you do if today were your last day?
