|How long do we have to stand here and pose?|
|Having fun with an old hat...|
|This wreath was made of human hair!|
|Enjoying my babies and munching on apples too....|
As I strolled along I mused that they were perhaps not that different from us....they had all the trappings and vanity of man as we do today. They had an eye for beauty, they were well educated, they lived in a comfortable home and worked with vigor. Nothing stands out as extraordinary to me except that their house is still standing along with a myriad of other items from long ago.
Time...people.... come and go...homes....come and go......marriages....friends......health.......money in the bank.....come and go....ideas.....work.....projects....jobs.......hobbies. You get the picture...
But, "Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever." Hebrews 13:8
I'm realizing more and more that we really only have moments and in those moments are made seconds, minutes, hours and days. They turn into weeks, months, years, and the passing of time. Moments are more important than memories. You cannot pick your true memories, they somehow choose themselves. Sure, you can preserve snap shots or mementoes to help you, but ultimately, memories are made in moments and then they are gone....
SO enjoy all the precious moments you have today with all the precious people around you that God puts in your life day to day to day. They were meant for you...gifts from God to you. Don't waste time in vain pursuits even if those around you assure you that you might be missing out. CHERISH your moments today.
