Moments Away

“Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.” 

You may have seen this popular quote on billboards, cards, calendar or wall art.  How many moments recently have taken your breath away?  Was it watching Michael Phelps break all time Olympic record, or the US Women’s Gymnastic Team win Gold? Perhaps it was exuberant hug of a child, or unexpected good news.

Everyday holds the possibility of a miracle someone once said.  God provides moments through the beauty of nature, or through the love of family and friends to remind us He will turn darkness into light, and make our rough places smooth.   He promised never to forsake or abandon us, even in the darkest of times.  So each new day is another opportunity for you and I to experience these precious moments.  So don’t get so caught in the doing things, and miss them.  Every rainbow, warm breeze, and gift of love is God blessing us with moments meant to bring us closer to Him.   Isaiah 42:16 NIV
