I was out on the front step this morning. It is just beautiful, normal spring like weather has finally arrived. I just love the sound of dozens of birds singing and that sound seemingly coming at you from every direction.
We live well into a major city but here we have more squirrels and rabbits than I ever saw living in rural areas. I suppose it is because they don’t have the same natural preditors here as they would in the wild. Just look around and there is such beauty everywhere. I love the color of the new leaves a much lighter shade of green than that to which they will soon become.
I realize one of the life lessons I really need to focus on is appreciation. Appreciation off all of the true blessings I have in my life. I KNOW I am a very blessed man, a very lucky man.
Some how it seems to be so easy to loose sight of the big picture and focus instead on the immediate surroundings or situation. Worrying about tomorrow only robs me of today. I don’t have enough today’s to allow that to happen. Think about it, NONE OF US, do. In our hearts we all know this, yet still allow it to happen, why?
I want to really LIVE every moment I have left. For me attitude is key. I have prayed asking for God’s will to be done in my life. Parts of me are content with that. My will keeps getting in the way. MY will is to live is to live into my 90’s and then die after being shot in the back by a jealous husband. That is a really big LOL.
I am going live and enjoy every moment I can right up until our Heavenly Father nudges me right up to the doorway to the other side. At that point and only at that point will very willingly step right though with no hesitation or concern. How are you living your life?
