Live the Moment

Live the moment
Last night Emily sent me an absolutely beautiful picture of a town all lit up for Christmas. The lights were gracefully draped over the street and the picture seemed magical. It gave me a deep longing for Christmas. All at once I was so excited and wanted to decorate our house and go get a tree. I wanted to hang lights and just see the magic. I mostly want Kaleb and Emily to be home and to be sitting in church on Christmas Eve. I want to celebrate the birth of our Savior. But at the same time, I was so frustrated. I don’t want to get excited about Christmas yet. I want to enjoy Thanksgiving. I want to think about all the blessings I have and think about a God whom I love and I know loves me. I don’t want to rush through this season to get to the next one. I want to wait. I want to live each day knowing it is a blessing and that this day can be filled with Joy. I am also a little envious of Emily, she headed on a road trip this weekend, just to enjoy the time and ended up in Denver seeing a magical display of lights. Living the moment.
This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
