i saw this video and wanted to share it here. i was encouraged and convicted at the same time throughout all 4 minutes of it. i don't do this perfect. not even close. but i want to. and i will lord willing. to just be thankful and present throughout all these 'moments'. like really present though.
a few weeks ago i was shopping at publix and a sweet man who was stocking the aisle turned to greet georgia and i and then asked 'if school was cancelled that day'. i said 'i don't think so' and then he said 'oh okay i was just wondering since you had her with you'. i laughed and said 'she's always with me'. i was kinda being sarcastic. then he smiled and said...
"so you're one of those lucky ones"
i've thought about that sentence a hundred times since that day. he spoke such truth into my life that day with those 7 words. i don't want to just think about those words. i want that thought to sink so deep that everyday i feel lucky. blessed. alive. present. in all the moments in this ordinary, holy life.
enjoy the video. enjoy your day. be back soon...
