I was speaking with one of the young Taiwanese exchange students that stayed with our family a few years back today. He sent me a few pictures of his family and how he looks now. I was shocked I did not even recognize him in the picture. He was not a little kid anymore he had grown into a young man.
This got me thinking about my own children and family. Boy does time fly or what. I know you hear it all the time from people older then you how fast their lives went bye. The trouble is you don't really pay much attention to them when your young, dumb and think your invincible. I am sitting here tonight looking around at my life and once again am realizing just how blessed I really am. Last Sunday our pastor said something to me that really hit home as well. WE ARE ALL RICH. I know most of us say this is not so but think about it. We live in a country of plenty. Plenty of shopping, coffee shops, movie theaters food, water etc. Do ever just sit back and think about your life. In North America we are in the very small percentage of human beings that are truly blessed to live here. Even if we have no money there are outreach services to help. Not one person in North America is really poor. Even that tiny check you receive is more money then someone in a third world country would make in a whole year. Quite possibly in their entire lifetime. Just to taste Fresh Clean drinking water is unimaginable to so many across this planet.
Tonight as I sit here and my children have gone to bed. I am thankful that God has blessed my family to be here at this moment, healthy, happy, and maybe not money rich but yes RICH in all ways. I am searching myself and am being reminded to stop for just a moment in time and to smell the roses.
I received a video from my mom tonight as well. It drew tears to my eyes in a happy way. It is a video of my now 7 year old daughter doing a dance along with her then favorite person Dora the Explorer. I can remember a time thinking if this Dora thing was ever going to end. Everything she thought about and talked about was Dora. Well, I blinked and poof she is now so big and I know that she isn't going to go back to that little curly haired cutie, she is only going to grow and mature into a beautiful young woman. So again I urge you try, try to slow down once in awhile. Why are we always so busy rushing around? What for? What is the point? If we never have anytime to enjoy all the hard work.
Anyways here is the video. Sorry it is on the side but that is how I received it. It makes me giggle ENJOY.....
1 Corinthians 7:29 Let me say this my dear brothers and sisters. The time that remains is very short.
