We have this moment today...


Time...it slips by unnoticed! Another year is about to end...

did we accept each day as a gift from God? That is my resolve for the New Year...to enjoy the blessings of each day. Sometimes we are so driven by tomorrow or so caught up in the past, we don't notice what's happening around us.

These are the words to a song that I sang so often when my kids were little...great lyrics that often come back to remind me to enjoy the moment!

We have this moment to hold in our hands
And to touch as it slips through our fingers like sand
Yesterday's gone and tomorrow may never come
But we have this moment, today.

Hold tight to the sound of the music of living
Happy sounds from the laughter of children at play
Hold my hand as we walk through the sweet fragrant meadows
Making memories of what was today.

Tiny voice that I hear is my little girl calling
For daddy to hear just what she has to say
My little boy running there by the hillside
May never be quite like today.

Tender words gentle touch and a good cup of coffee
And someone who loves me and wants me to stay
Hold them dear while they’re near don’t wait for tomorrow
To look back and wish for today.

Yesterday's gone and tomorrow may never come
but we have this moment, today.

Seize the day...enjoy what God has given us to enjoy and make memories that can never be made again!

(Lyrics by Bill & Gloria Gaither)

  4. It's always encouraging to see what's on your mind. Mine is quite empty.
    Have not had any down time or space. I've got the little guy for two days, so I'll call you shortly after NY.
