This Blessed Moment

This Blessed Moment

A couple in a canoe on a mountain lake in autumn
Do not say, “Why were the old days better than these?” For it is not wise to ask such questions.—Ecclesiastes 7:10 NIV

Most people spend a lot of time reliving the past or focused on what might happen—all the while squandering the gift of the moment. Make right now your focus. Appreciate where you are, and be grateful that you are here.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, this is the first minute of the rest of my life.
