This is what we are going to do today

“Live life for the moment because everything else is uncertain!”
~ Louis Tomlinson

Dear Friends

It’s important to remember the value of living in the now. Yesterday can’t be changed and no matter how much we long for tomorrow we can’t do anything there until tomorrow actually comes. So why not just live in the now, in the today, in this very moment of moments? What other choice do we have anyway?

Today, we are going to grab hold of life and live it to the fullest. We are going to let people know how much they mean to us. We are going to do our jobs to the best of our ability. We are going to support our co-workers, friends, family, bosses and pastors. We are going to give to the homeless and then give some more.  We are going to praise God, pray to God and be a witness to God. Because today is all we have and sometimes this opportunity too, can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye. Just a little something to think about not only today but for always.

What are you thankful for today? How will you make the most of each moment? Do you regret not enjoying other moments in your past? Is there some point of your life you would have lived differently or to the max?

Leave your thoughts via a comment or two 🙂

Enjoying the Now

“Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.”
Omar Khayyam

 

The now, this present moment, is difficult. Burying someone you love is never easy.

But here I am in Trinidad visiting and supporting my cousin as we lay her husband to rest. He was a good man who loved the Lord and will be missed.  Yet, the time we have been able to spend together as a family is amazing as many of us come together – after lots of years apart – for this sad event.

Christmas like every other season comes whether we are alive or dead, happy or sad, alone or with others. My advice? Let’s make every effort to enjoy every single moment of every single day, because only the NOW in life is a given.  Hope you’ll agree 🙂
