Today's topic on the Family Minute with Mark Merrill was how to live your life as though you have limited or "Borrowed Time."  He says:

Think about it.  Your spouse comes up to you and says, “The doctor said I only have a year to live.”  Then would it matter so much that he forgot to take out the trash—again?  Would you care if she left the garage door open more times than she closed it?  And would it still annoy you that he got lost but refused to stop and ask for directions?  None of us knows exactly how much more time we’ll have with our spouse. 

Mark shared the story of Zac, who learned he had terminal cancer and wrote a letter to his younger self.  It is powerful stuff. Watch the video here:
