On those days when you tend to think too far into the future, imagining what anguish, what difficulty might await you, take a deep breath, look around you, and breathe in the moment. Squeeze every ounce of goodness out of it, because it’s the only moment we have. The future belongs to the One who is already there, and I’ve learned that He can be trusted.
So, I’m taking a deep breath and letting it out slowly, living in the moment.
Inside, the fragrance of apple pie lingers in the air.
Outside, the neighborhood is peaceful and green.
My little backyard garden has been prodded and pruned.
And still, she offers her beauty.
A stake in the ground reminds me of what I already know, and what was proven again just this week.
The laundry has been folded, the floors have been swept, and I discovered long ago that the best flowers come from your very own garden, and the best arrangements are not arranged at all.
I'm living in the moment.
Here’s wishing you a weekend of the same.
