Each Second A Gift~

My Bible,
 a cup of vanilla/hazelnut coffee with cinnamon sprinkles on top,
 my camera, 
my laptop, 
a couple of turtles,
 birds of all feathers, 
my little dog Sally.....
all companions as I enjoy this beautiful spring morning out on our patio. 
 What a beautiful way to start the day.

Today, take some time to enjoy YOUR life.
Slow down and savor the every day moments -

Feel the breeze caressing your face,
the sun soaking deep into your muscles and tissues,
the air as each breath fills your lungs.

Hear the symphony of praise coming from birds far and near,
the laughter of children,
the song of the wind through a pine tree.

See the blue of the sky and the white of the clouds,
the dance of leaves and the ballet of butterflies,
the petals of a flower and the bark of a tree.

Smell the blossom in full bloom,
the barbecue two houses down,
the scent of rain as the sprinkler showers the dry earth.

Taste the coffee in your cup,
the kiss of your sweetheart,
the incredible goodness of the Lord.

Don't let this day slip by.
Don't let this moment go unnoticed.
Don't miss right here, right now.
Each moment is special.
Each second a gift.
Enjoy every single morsel of it.~♥

This is the day the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
~Psalm 118:24

  1. Perfect first read after a somewhat yucky morning. (Dog messed up her crate during the night. Not her fault, I slept in too long, poor baby.) So yeah, this is a nice escape! Ha!


Thank you for leaving a "heartprint" of your own.
