“One of the illusions of life is that the present hour is not the critical, decisive hour. Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year. No man has learned anything rightly, until he knows that every day is Doomsday.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it! (Psalm 118:24)
If not now…when? If not here…where? If not fully…how? All each one of us really has is the present moment. There are no guarantees of more, yet we plan, fret, fume, and strive for more. Preparation is a good thing to be sure, but it should never eclipse the act of living right now, right here, this day.
This week try to walk in the present moment. Enjoy the gifts of God. Treasure your family and friends. Breathe deeply, love largely, and give thanks frequently.
