What would you do if you only have 48 hours to live?

If you suddenly discovered that you only have 48 hours remaining to live in this world, what would be the last few things that you would do and please do state them in chronological order along with how long will you be doing them. One reminder though: make it realistic. I think I'd be in a children's nursery, particularly in the nursery where I volunteered for five weeks. I'll just play with them, sing songs with them and just enjoy my last 48 hours on earth. How about you?

i think i will spend my last 48 hours strengthening my relationship with God, families and my friends before i leave this world... i will definitely pray to God and ask for His help and if He really wants me to go, then i will just follow His will...

I will pay all my debts - material and moral ones. I will tell all the words, express all the supressed emotion i have deeply in my heart and soul. I will find the courage to forgive and to ask to be forgive. And my last hours i will spend allone trying to archive inside peace.

I would go visit close friends and family members and make it the best time I have ever had in my life for 48 hours.

It's rather an interesting and challenging question. I never have thought this before. If I were in that situation I would like to list out all my valuable things and classify them into categories. Then I would find out those who need them badly. I then would donate to them accordingly. I think I could manage to finish this good deed with the specified period.

Well, this is a very tough question. I am not sure of what to do exactly but I will try to enjoy my last moments on earth in any way that I can.

wow this is one of the creepy discussions here in mylot. of course i will pray maybe cry because im shocked that i have a very little time but try to accept it inside me that i do. i will probably spread the news to my love ones and relatives and try to find out if there is still solution. i wont give up until tle last second of the 48 hours time. i will really pray hard thanks the people who show me love and try to do the things i want to do within the period of time. yet continue to pray to god that if it is his will it will be. whew its really hard to think the right answer for your topic friend.

Well, I'd probably just tell the people I know and maybe give away some of my stuff to friends, then keep doing whatever I usually do. Stuff like going online and reading. It seems pointless, but it's what I like to do.
