Simple Moments

One of the things God has been trying to teach me for a long time is to enjoy the simple moments of life. It sounds so easy but it's been a hard thing for me to learn. My mind tends to either battle voices from my past or invent fears about the future.

I miss so much when I'm not " in the moments". It 's those little everyday pleasures that bring joy to my life if I can just still my mind and open my eyes.

I have to constantly remind myself to focus on the here and now because that's where true joy slips in; that, and thanking God for all those little things, and for the pricless gift of Jesus, my Savior.

"But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love you may rejoice in you", Psalm 5:11. NIV

Joy

Surprises me
always

never appears as anticipated
at life's black-tie events.

Startles me
with its' simplicity

yellow tulips
redbird in flight

fresh brewed coffee
child's hand in mine.

                            Stuns me
                            with
                            its' silent delight.
