The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never
come to an end; they are new every morning. . .
– Lamentations 3:22-23
“Fully present” is a phrase my husband has used to explain how we should live every day………….
Not regretting yesterday or worrying about tomorrow,
But being “fully present” today.
That means that we are not side-tracked by the things we “need to do” when we are in the middle of what we are actually doing.
So, today, as my mind is spinning with things to pack, things to organize around the house, things to make sure to leave available for mom and the kids while we are gone, I don’t want to lose today.
I want to make sno-cones with Olivia and her friend.
I want to help Todd find sunglasses in a way that doesn’t make him feel like he is interrupting my tomorrow.
I want to laugh.
I want to smile.
I want to enjoy today, because today is a gift……………………..and I’ve heard several times in my life that that may be the very reason today is called “the present.”
I hope today you will find yourself FULLY PRESENT in the moments God gives you.
Today is a gift, a present, from Him to you.
Thankful for His gift of today,
