Living In The Now

Ver River – Riverside walk Nr Drop Lane Over the years the River Ver has proved itself to be a natural resource in many ways. It has always been used to provide a drinking water supply for human beings but other uses have included defence, a source of power and a focus for recreation and leisure. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The older I get I realize the importance of living “now” and not remembering the “glory days” of youth and of other great moments in my life.  It is easy to reflect, look back on the things I liked about my earlier life, when my children were young and still living at home, or my past accomplishments and be stuck in the memory.

The wonderful and terrible thing about life is this:  It goes on – It always changes.

We as human beings also need that next “big thing” – something to strain toward – an event to look forward to – a reason to get up in the morning.

But with both the past and the future like clouds we cannot pin down – it is a discipline to learn to live in the now.

Taking a walk today with Greg and our puppy – it was nice to just look at the beauty around me – enjoy the simple things like hearing birds chirping, seeing other people and their dogs, or riding a bike – enjoying health and breath and feeling rich.

Help me Lord to not look too long on the past with a regretful or wishful glance – help me not to put my life on hold for that sweet promise of future – instead, help me to focus on the wonderful things in life – right now, today.  Amen


God Bless
