When we first learned that our faraway family was going to be moving much closer to us, we looked forward to weekends when we could all be together! We had the first of those weekends recently and oh, the memory-making moments!
Through the years, the Lord has taught me to see the present as His gift.
It wasn't always that way. When I was younger, I was constantly looking ahead. To growing up. Getting married. Having the baby sleep through the night. Improvement in our finances. Next week. Next year.
But somewhere along the way, He taught me to be still. To savor.
And on this weekend, I savored.

|A Family Gathering

"Today is mine. Tomorrow is none of my business. If I peer anxiously into the fog of the future, I will strain my spiritual eyes so that I will not clearly see what is required of me now." (Elisabeth Elliot)
