Year ends and year begins in the splitting of a second. Night sky turns to sunrise and we begin again. The evening and the morning are a new day.
God breathes. We are given life. How then shall we occupy our place on the planet? What legacy will we leave to those who come after us?
For we have this moment. Today.
Bill Gaither penned these words:
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.
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.
Don’t just exist. Live abundantly.
Don’t just work. Create art.
Don’t just tap your foot. Make music.
Don’t just stand there. Love your neighbor.
Be a blessing. Make a difference. Give grace.
We have this moment today.
