Not a Moment for Granted

I’ve been thinking a lot this week about how much of life I take for granted.  Especially the time with my children.

I have 6 very healthy sons.  The twins who were premature and had a risky first couple years, have come out of that completely unscathed.

As moms, the health and well-being of our children is pretty much at the very top of the list of things we make sure are taken care of daily.  As I read about baby Stellan and many, many others in dire circumstances I am reminded once again of two very important things…

First, do NOT take anything in life for granted, realize the gift each moment we have is and celebrate it.  Second, prayer changes lives.  Maybe not always in the way we expect, but covering those who are in need is like medicine.

For those of you who are experiencing trials or difficulties today, please rest in the love and covering of God and the prayers of those around you. There’s a scripture that has comforted me through many difficult times and I hope that it touches you as well…

… but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31)

I pray that you are blessed today, whatever your needs are!
