Time is short. (Lydia) :)

Hello Sweetie's Customers! 

 It's been awhile since I've written to you. How are you today? Can you believe it!? It's already summer! Time has flown by so fast. Less than two more months and I'll be back in Australia. Once again, I'll have to adapt different living situations. I'll probably move back to my parent's house. I feel like I will have to be an adult. Hahaha. I'm personally bad at keeping in contact with people, but if I happen to meet people who I haven't seen in a long time, my feelings of friendship towards them will always be there. I'm one of those people who only have enough energy to concentrate on the people around me so I hope no one is offended if I don't initiate conversations after I leave. I'll still love you and remember you though. 

A few weeks ago, I honestly didn't want to leave Japan. But after feeling the humidity of Japan's summer I had a change of heart. It is so hot here. I am constantly sweating profusely. 

I know I will miss a lot things in Japan, such as the convenience stores, the deliciously, fried food at the cafeteria, vending machines, he beautiful country scenes of Saijo, especially the numerous rice fields and of course, I will miss all the people I have met and the friends I have made here. I definitely want to come and visit again. (I haven't even left Japan and I already sound I'm planning a reunion). It would be nice to have a reunion though. Time really does fly. That's why it is important to have a purpose in life, otherwise you lose track of time and won't be able to do what you were made to do. If you don't know what that purpose is, I suggest you find out because there is a God out there who wants to tell you. He is the God that created the whole world, the God I worship and the God I love. Everything is meaningless if you don't know Him. This is the truth, but you have to come to that conclusion yourself. Time is short. We all will die physically one day. I hope that you will not waste your life but find the answers that you are looking for. I have found them and am content. I have a hope and an assurance beyond death, and it's not because of anything I've done or achieved. But it's because my God has made a way for me to live, and that is through Jesus. Maybe, it doesn't make sense to you now but I hope it will before it's too late. Time is precious. What will you do today? Is it worth it in the end?

Wow, that was long and deep. It'd be cool to have some deep conversations in Sweeties one time.
