thinking about life

I have been thinking a lot lately about life... about enjoying each moment of my life NOW... about breathing deeply and savoring each moment ... the feel of the dew on my toes ... the sight of fog first thing in the morning... the bright orange sun as it pops up and greets us in the morning. I have been enjoying the sight of the birds feeding at our feeder out the porch of the loft where we are living... the sight of my little grandson's eyes as they light up when they recognize us... the sounds of his squeals...

I have been taking in the warm sun on my skin... the smell of our humid days (always reminds me of Florida where some of our happiest trips have been). There is just so much. I want to feel and touch and hear and taste and see. I want to live FULLY today at the same time as I look forward to TOMORROW with great anticipation.

As I watch my little grandson grow up before our eyes, I realize how life does go quickly by. I know it doesn't seem so at the moment. I remember my mom saying "Honey, they grow up so fast" after a time when she knew I was tired and the kids were acting up a little.

Lately I have thought a lot about life (like I stated previously) and two things happened. One: I heard a beautiful song which I will also post here. Love Love LOVE the true.

Secondly I had the privilege of listening to this YouTube. Hope it blesses you too.

O Lord, teach us to number our days!!
