Just as the seasons of this world change, so do the seasons of our lives. If we’re not careful, we’ll forget the moments that take our breath away, made us smile or brought tears to our eyes. We’ll forget that feeling we had on the first day of spring. Or the time we finally did something we always thought was just a dream. We’ll forget how God used one of the most difficult situations to bring us closer to Him. If we’re not careful, we won’t see the blessings that God has given us, too concerned with what we do not have.
In contrast, why not reminisce and wallow in God’s mercies and blessings? Why not take a moment to look around with fresh eyes? Watch the sunset tonight. Look up at the stars. Listen for a the owl hooting in the night. Snuggle your kids just a moment longer. Kiss your spouse as if it were the first time. Enjoy this season you are in. Relish in the right here and right now.
Praying for you always!
