At this time of the year we see those puffy white clouds drifting overhead. The afternoons can be sleepy and almost dreamy. Summer is finally gone..the rain has started..fall is here and a shift seems to be taking place. I usually feel melancholy in this season. I wonder if it is just the reality of another year almost over. Time is passing so quickly and here we are approaching 2011. What happened?
Life moves quickly..too quickly for my taste. I want to savour every day. To remain fully present in the moment so I don’t miss anything. It is a gift. Everyday is an amazing opportunity to experience life more fully. I’m not claiming I always do this..but my heart’s desire is to be grateful for every moment.. to appreciate each day..to enjoy the beauty that surrounds me. So much of my life was rushing from one thing to another..being so busy just surviving.. I don’t think I realized that someday I would actually begin to see the finish line.
I hope you are able to relax and enjoy the holiday season that is just around the corner. Taking time for long walks..deep conversations..meaningful relationships..wonderful meals..good books. Life is short and time flies. We can embrace this life fully.. if we do we will never be sorry. Let’s enjoy this amazing life that our Creator has given us..soaking it in..celebrating..remembering His goodness in the land of the living.
“For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and His faithfulness continues to each generation.”
