I've had a lot of quiet, reflective time lately. Mornings on my back patio, evenings to myself, car rides for thinking.
And singing. Lots of singing.
Sometimes I find myself so caught up in the future- anticipating what will be, how I'll get there.
And sometimes I find myself transported to the past- reflecting on what was, what will never be.
But in my quiet time, God is sending me a message, loud and clear: soak in the present.
It's not for me to know my future.
And it's not for me to change my past.
Not that I would have done it any differently; God's hand has been so evident in my life, every step of the way.
I took the above picture earlier this evening in the car (sorry, Dad- just a brief moment of texting & driving.) I think it perfectly sums up now, this moment in life.
The here and now is very, very good.
