right now living.
right now giving.
and ultimately, right now thriving.
i find that much of my life has been spent living friday to friday, or with an attitude of " i'll be happy when..."
even in my faith, my youth was spent looking for Jesus rising with the sun, to take us all out of here.
'here' being the crux the crust the must of it all.
writing is a most wonderful thing, because no matter what your circumstances, you can or may, put them into a proper or even improper perspective.
but the gist of it all or the jest if you will, is that you can capture your moments, meditate, think, create, complain, give thanks about your here and your now.
'someday' is not here.
someday, when i lose weight, someday when we have money, someday when we move over the mountains, someday when we are too old to take care of ourselves and on and on.
like the prayer of brother Francis, essentially, help me Lord, to be here now.
enjoying you Father and glorifying you in my home,
sure; sad past, uncertain future.
Let it go. Be here now. With all your heart and soul and mind and strength.
It doesn't come naturally. Adam and Eve proved that.
But fight the good fight with love, joy, peace,patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control
and do everything with prayer and thanksgiving
because someday, we'll be in heaven
