Be Still A Moment

November 4, 2011

Sometimes.

I feel overwhelmed.

Lost.

Frustrated.

Jealous.

Petty.

Discontent.

Like life is simply going so fast and I can’t keep up.

Then in a split second I’m reminded of just how much I have to be thankful for, if I’d only pause to see it.

We are blessed beyond belief. There are millions of people all over the world that would give anything to have a small bit of what we experience every day.

We take so much for granted. Life. Joy. Small glimpses of heaven in our children. Health. Time. Money. Friends. Family. Freedom.

Today – take a moment and be still, let life and all it’s beautiful frailness wash over you. Look at what you’ve been given with new eyes; ones of patience, grace, and appreciation.

Just for a second, let all the fears and worries fall away. Be at peace and content with where you are, what you have, and all the wonderful unknowns still to come.

    Great post. I feel like since Marley was born life is flying by and I’ve had some trouble dealing with that, close to the point of going to talk to someone about it. I haven’t ruled that out yet, but I am trying to live in the moment and realize how good I have it more often 🙂

    Lovely post. I feel like this so often, and yet once in a while I am reminded of how good I have it, and it’s humbling.
