"We Have This Moment."  The song has been on my mind so often lately.  I am thankful
to The Gaither Vocal Band for it's meaningful lyrics.

Maybe things happen like this, as one approaches age 60.  Often I wish for time to
slow down.  I want to take more time to appreciate the precious gift of "moments" in my life.
This is what is on my heart on this last week of March.



"Hold tight to the sound of the music of living,
Happy songs from the laughter of children at play;
Hold my hand as we run through the sweet, fragrant meadows,
Making mem'ries of what was today."




Chorus;  "We have this moment to hold in our hands
and to touch as it slips through our fingers like sand;
Yesterday's gone and tomorrow may never come,
But we have this moment today."
 



"Tiny voice that I hear is my little girl calling,
For Daddy to hear just what she has to say;
And my little son running there by the hillside,
May never be quite like today."




 "Tender words, gentle touch and a good cup of coffee,
And someone who loves me and wants me to stay;
Hold them near while they're here and don't wait for tomorrow,
To look back and wish for today."




"Take the blue of the sky and the green of the forest,
And the gold and the brown of the freshly mowed hay;
Add the pale shades of spring and the circus of autumn,
and weave you a lovely today."



 Chorus;  "We have this moment to hold in our hands
and to touch as it slips through our fingers like sand;
Yesterday's gone and tomorrow may never come,
But we have this moment today."



My prayer on this Monday...that you may be given "moments" that you can treasure, and store
in your heart today.  Today does matter.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

So very well said and so true. It seems like the older I get the more I appreciate this. You chose wonderful photos to illustrate the words, Judy. The hands of the older lady holding the newborn baby really says it all. Lovely post, as always.
I'm not sure of the exact date of your birthday, but I hope it is very special and memorable.

Brings to mind Dayle Allen Shockley's post. . .
"But I'm no longer a young woman; these days are different. While I miss the strength of my youth, I am deeply grateful to know there are joys that come with aging. Though some fight against the inevitable change of pace that the years bring, I've come to cherish my life in the slow-lane, the life that God has graciously granted to me."
