Living in the Moment

Now this is a Kodak moment. Just seeing the joy on this little guy’s face gives me a good feeling. It takes so little to please children. They get so much pleasure from the simple things in life--things like standing under a sprinkler on a hot July day or watching a sparkler throw flaming stars into the darkness of the night. This little fellow isn’t worried about paying the mortgage or whether his stocks are up or down. He has no concern for where his next meal will come from or if he’ll have clean clothes to put on in the morning. His attention is therefore fully focused on the moment and the sensation of cool water on his skin. Would you like to experience that sense of security again? You can. We can rely on our heavenly Father to meet all our needs, just as this boy’s needs are met. All we need to do is trust him and stand under the shower of his blessings. Complete trust brings complete joy. Moment by moment.

“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!” (Matthew 7:11, NASB)
