Living each day

I’ve been reminiscing about the past. My childhood. The good old days. And at the same time, I’m worrying about the future. My retirement. The coming end days. I think about the house I used to live in, and the house I yearn for.  I think about the holidays I enjoyed, and the holidays I dream about.  I think about my children when they were babies, and the adults they will grow into. At times, I feel that I’m almost losing my mind, myself, in all these thoughts, in all the busyness and noises around me.

And in one quiet moment, as I push the stroller along a shady path, just me and my sleeping baby, I become mindful of the present, of the living word of God…

“Give us each day our daily bread” – Luke 11: 3

Not the stale bread of yesterday, and not the un-risen bread of tomorrow but the bread for today.

So these days, I’m savouring each moment, I’m being mindful of His presence and I’m living each day for His glory.
