It has been quiet on my blog lately. I had my computer worked on and then life just seemed to get pretty busy. It will be quiet for the next week also, so I wanted to squeeze a quick post in today! I have been thinking alot lately on the simple, insignificant moments in our life. I mentioned this in another post, but I have been thinking about it so much lately I wanted to dedicate an entire blog post to it. I know I have missed out greatly on seemingly insignificant moments in the past because I was to worried about the future to pay attention to the present. So lately I have been trying to take time and notice the simple things that just make me smile. Take time to stop and take a picture of God’s beauty. To focus on my blessings and live in the now! Since I have become more aware of those simple joys, I think my husband thinks I have gone crazy! I can’t help but notify him when I am excited about something. I love listening to the Dave Ramsey show while I am sewing. Just a couple days ago they started a new thing where you can now watch the show. I was overly excited and decided to share with my husband. I think the response was something like: “wow, is all I can say.” He wouldn’t know what to do without a me and my excitement, I think he would grow board (: A few other things that have made me smile lately are: getting a Keurig from the Gateway Woods auction, getting a whole stack of books from the library so I can guiltlessly read while on vacation, graham crackers/peanut butter/chocolate snacks, new chevron pillows in my room, and a new cd from Pslam 100 Quartet.
While we were in Milford last Sunday there was a few people there from the Pslam 100 Quartet (how I got my new CD). Anyway the CD is all about Heaven. One of the singers brother just recently passed away from cancer. So they made this CD awhile ago to raise funds for the Cancer Redemption Project. Go here and here to read this couples story and learn more about it. I highly recommend it, it is very touching. The story really convicts me to not waste any moment. We never know how long we have left on this earth, I want to make the most of it. I want my life to glorify God. It also really shows how God can use something as horrible as cancer for his glory. I know it is easy to get busy and wrapped up in problems of this life. This testimony and story challenged me to sit back and think on what I am using my moments on. I decided I want to use my moments being thankful and joyful, not stressed and annoyed. I want to use them to God’s glory, not my own. So I want to encourage you today to enjoy the simple joys of life and make the most of them!
