But the present, well, it's here. It's here in the midst of today's to-do list. It's here in reality. It's here now. And we mostly rush through it. Busy. Preoccupied. Often overlooking the beauty in it. Thinking that tomorrow we will have time to enjoy today. Unfortunately, that tomorrow seems to never come.
|My lillies: one beauty in today|
I'd prefer to live fully in the moment I am given. This one. To live life with my eyes wide open. Aware. Thankful. Joyful in the "now" of my life story.
I can't change the past. I can't determine the future. But I can choose to entrust both of them to the One Who made me. I can also choose to thank Him for the gift of the present, no matter what my circumstances or agenda for the day, by living fully in it.
Will you join me, friend?
"This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it."
“I don't really want more time; I just want enough time. Time to breathe deep and time to see real and time to laugh long, time to give You glory and rest deep and sing joy and just enough time in a day not to feel hounded, pressed, driven, or wild to get it all done-yesterday.” ― Ann Voskamp
Today I'm joining Lisa-Jo Baker for 5 Minute Friday.
This is when I "just write without worrying if it's just right or not. For five minutes flat with not editing, tweaking, or self-critiquing."
Today's word: Present.
