Psalm 118:24 “This is the day the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
It’s been quite some time since I’ve blogged, years in fact. It’s funny how the hours, days, weeks, and months can seem to slip on by. “I’ll get to it” or “Tomorrow…I’ll have time tomorrow” is a common thought process for those items that don’t seem high enough on the to-do list. The thing is, the moments…the moments of rest, the moments of doing something that fills you with calmness or joy, the moments that fill up your heart…they matter. They may not be at the top of the to-do list, they may not even seem important to someone else, but they are important. Talking on the phone with a sibling or friend, quietly reading a book, sipping a cup of coffee in the early morning light, or running through the woods on a trail, these are all important to our lives of faith, to our time with God, to the small pauses in the day that allows us to be in the presence of God… when we pause and breath, even for just a moment. God breathed into dust, creating us in God’s image. With each breath we take, in each moment, God is with us. Yes, there’s always more to do. But pausing for just a moment, embracing those moments that God gives us to breath, those are holy moments. Let us rejoice in these moments.
