The Book Of Life

Have you ever wondered, what if ... what if the whole of your life is just a book. You do not actually exist, but you are a character in a book, and there is someone out there reading all about you and your life. Whatever you do, or did, in life, from the moment you are born, is written in this book which is being read right now.

"And (your name) took the dog for a walk as usual starting from the park and right into town where he/she bought some tobacco for his pipe/some lip stick to match the colour of her new shoes!"

Just imagine for a moment the whole of your past life. As far back as you can remember. All the good things you did, and the bad things too, are all written down in this book which is being read by someone. All your kindness and generosity towards others, all the spiteful hateful things you have done, all the hurts and all the pains that you have caused, or have been done to you, and all the good times you enjoyed. They are all written down in this book.

If this were so; what kind of book yours would be?

A scientific one? "And (your name) spent most of his/her life studying the reproductive system of the cockroach, and was the first one to discover that they can be taught to walk in a single file to the tune of "Happy Birthday".

Or a romantic book. "As they sat down on the warm grass for a picnic he admired her long blonde hair blowing in the wind, and ran after it before it got entangled in the bushes".

Or maybe a financial book. "(Your name) had a head for figures and became very wealthy at an early age with the aid of an electronic abacus and by inheriting a fortune".

A fantasy book perhaps. "(Your name) woke up early and ran to the forest before the trees got there, only to discover that someone had stolen the river because it had totally disappeared."

Or would it be a horror book recording all your wrongdoings and unhappiness you have caused to others?

Think about it for a moment. If whoever is reading your book was asked to write a review about it; what would He say?

For make no mistake about it ... now is the time to make sure that your Book of Life has a happy ending and a good review too.

  1. It's be a messy volume for sure ... kind of uncertain in spots, pretty clear in others, but always moving ahead, three steps forward, two steps back.

    By God's grace. Only.

  2. Too bad there are no re-writes... Hopefully there are a few chapters left.
    I'll shoot for a happy ending with a good review.
    Great thought provoking post, Victor:)

    1. Yes, sadly we cannot re-write our past chapters, Chris. But we can go for a happy ending.

      God bless you my friend.

  3. I'm pretty sure no one would buy the movie rights to my book. That might be a god thing.

    Interesting post, and I do get your point.

  4. Having 'survived' through "interesting times" (the proverbial Chinese curse); my book would be FULL of 'human messes' -- followed up with considerable 'Repentance'!

  5. My life as a book? Wow, that certainly puts so much, good and bad, in perspective. May our good deeds and love for others be the gist of the plot.
    Blessings, Victor!

    1. We are the authors, to some extent, of our own story. Are we not?

      God bless you, Martha.

  6. He would say "she loved life and living it.
    She made mistakes and tried to correct the wrong ones.
    Family was most important to her and friends were always welcome...old and new.
    She suffered but always forgave those who caused her pain.
    She was far from perfect but she gave it her best.
    She always worshiped and loved Me.
    In other words...she was human 💮

    God's Blessings ✝

  7. Methinks Shakespearean. 'Just not sure if it would be a comedy or a tragedy.
    Perhaps Suzanne J. has described it best. Another home run, Victor!
