Psalm 144:4

Lately, I have noticed myself saying, “Boy, time sure flies!” I was at my nephews 4th birthday party this weekend and heard more than once, “I can’t believe he is 4 already, where has the time gone?” I remember when I was little, I couldn’t wait for special days to come, like my birthday, Christmas, or the last day of school before summer vacation. I just wanted the days to fly by until my special one. Now, as I get older and realize that time doesn’t stand still, I want to savor every minute I can enjoying my family and friends, hanging out with my grand-kids and spending time with my aging mom. God doesn’t want us to take this life with a grain of salt living day to day waiting on something “special” to happen. He wants us to live joyfully, full of excitement and wonder. I encourage all of us to get up in the morning and thank God for waking us as we look forward to living for the moment with anticipation that it’s going to be a glorious day! Life is passing us by too quickly; make every day count with happy hearts. Have a blessed day! 🙂 Lori
