Summer 2013~Freeze Frame

"Don't resent the moments simply because they cannot be frozen. Taste them. Savor them. Give thanks for that daily bread. Manna doesn't keep overnight. More will come in the morning..."















































"...Our futile struggle in time is courtesy of God's excessive giving. Sunset after sunset make it hard to remember and hold just one. Smell after smell. Laugh after Laugh. A mind still thinking, a heart still beating. Imagine sticking your fingers on you pulse and thanking God every time he gave you another blood-driving, brain-powering thump. We should. And we shouldn't, because if we did, we would never do anything else with our living; we wouldn't have the time to look at or savor any of the other of our impossibillions of gifts."           N.D. Wilson ~ Death by Living

What a gift to have all your children with you! I don't take that for granted anymore.

And the Wilson quote? I think I am going to have to break my fast and buy that book!
