The Gift of the Present

Someone said that continually bemoaning the past, or dreading the future, is just a way to get out of hearing and obeying God right now....Ouch.

Lord, Thank you that you have given me the gift of the PRESENT! Help me to enjoy Your presence and love the people who cross my path today - one at a time.

Karen, I like this post. Some times I find myself longing for the past...I know it's not right..so I try to find some joy each day. I think there is always some thing to be thankful for in our daily lives. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie
