If I die young...




Dedicated to the memories all of those who passed far too young. 

No weeping
No hurt or pain
No suffering
You hold me now, You hold me now

Death, is tragic. But the death of someone young? It seems completely unbearable. 

We try to make sense and reason, but it seems that we will never know in this life why people die so young. 

Death is hard concept for me to grasp in itself. How one minute someone is with you and the next they are just gone.

But what do we consider young. When is a death less tragic? 60.. 90?

If we think of this in terms of eternity, we all die young. Our short time here on earth is nothing compared to that of eternity. 

What we do with that zero time, makes a difference in eternity. The things I say, the people I affect, the change I instill, the hurt I cause... it all matters. 

Knowing that our time here matters, doesn't it make you want to do better, be better?

If I die young, I want my friends and family to know how much I love and care about them. I don't want to wait until tragedy happens to start holding them closer. I want to hold them close at all times.

I don't want to spend my time complaining about how fast the time goes rather than enjoying the time I have.

If I die young, I want to see lives changed. I want to make a difference. I want to change the world.

I want to be known for my compassion for people and my passion for Jesus. 

If I die young, I don't want to waste another minute.

But the truth is, we all die young. Everyone of our lives will end too short it will seem. Too short to give enough, love enough, experience enough, share enough, dream enough...

So don't let another moment pass you by. 

Be not afraid of death, be afraid of the un-lived life. 




“Time," the Captain said, "is not what you think." He sat down next to Eddie. "Dying? Not the end of everything. We think it is. But what happens on earth is only the beginning.”

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
