Hello everyone...and a very "Happy Wednesday" to you! I sure hope that your day is off to a good start! As I've been sitting here...looking out my window, I've been watching the leaves blow by on the ground...and even out of the trees. There was a time, when it was warm...and the patio was set up, for my husband and I to sit outside and enjoy our dinnertime; but now...a lot of the things have been stored away, while only a small remnant of summer remains behind.
While sitting here...looking at everything around me, I have come to see how quickly time passes by. The leaves that once looked so lush and green on the trees, have now given way to a new season, as they fall to the ground. Soon, the trees will go to sleep, for a long winters nap, until another year brings back the memories, of what was once before me.
As I think on this today...I am also thinking on how the sand in the hour glass seems to be falling much quicker than it once was. As one calendar day turns over into another new day, can we say that the days that have passed, have made a difference in our lives? In other words...were there moments that stuck and became deeply embedded within us...which over time produced new growth?
No matter what we may be experiencing or facing in life right now...one thing we need to think on; is are we allowing these moments, to become wasted moments...a time, when these moments of heartache and pain have only become a vapor; that only appeared for a short time, while leaving with nothing to remind us, as to how far God could have brought us?
I remember a time, when my husband and I drove along the Oregon coast. As I saw the ocean, for the very first time...my eyes took hold of the moments, when the waves came in and then went out...and as I focused deeply, on what I was seeing before me; it was a reminder to me, as to how quickly the moments of our lives come and go...never to return in the same way again.
Today, can we say that as the moments leave...that they are actually leaving something behind...something that can cause us to experience even better moments to come? One thing we should always remember; is to live life to it's fullest...for once the sands of time have left the hour glass...they will never return in that same way to us again.
As we walk through this day, I pray that we will soak in each moment that God lays before us; that as these moments leave...something will be left behind; that will cause us to live even more...for the moments that lie ahead of us!
Have a great and blessed day...and I will hope to be with you again this evening!
Many...many blessings on your day!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
