Ordinary Days

It's the sunlight through the curtains, morning pushing back the night. It's my kids’ faces in the kitchen, little moons of borrowed light; they're on their tiptoes always reaching for something bigger than they are. It's holding them and knowing that I've caught a shooting star! It's the way they feel the music, spinning like the falling leaves. They’re poetry in motion and they want to dance with me! I know it won't always be like this; my eyes are open, and I don't want to miss these seemingly “ordinary” days. In a million little ways, I want to stay right here. Heavenly Father, thank You for today and all you’ve given our family.

Proverbs 27:1 - “Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.” 1Thessalonians 5:18 - “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” Colossians 1:16 - “For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:” Eccelesiastes 3:1-4 –To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;" Romans 4:21 - “And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.”

Lord, help me to appreciate every single moment and to teach our kids about You and Your Love. Oh, the days are moving slowly but the years go by so fast. None of us are promised tomorrow. Father, let me linger in these moments before they turn into the past -- oh, how I want to make them last! I know it won't always be like this; help me not take for granted all the blessings You’ve given us. I don't want to miss these ordinary days.
