How to Fill Your Time with Blessings

So, we spent this past Easter at the in-laws place. They’ve got a nice chunk of land in the wooded area of northeast Texas and their home is set deep within their acreage so that, looking out, you see nothing but nature. Rabbits, and squirrels abound and it’s not surprising to find a hummingbird or two there this time of year. It’s a beautiful, peaceful place filled with family, love and special moments.

I can still see Lexi among all the grandchildren racing through the field. She always has such a joyful look about her when she runs. It’s a scene that is awesome, inspiring and –to me- very precious.

You don’t have to be a parent to feel this way, though. I’m sure you’ve experienced moments in your life that you wish you could capture and relive over and over again; like watching the favorite parts of a movie about your life.

Unfortunately, life can’t be lived that way. It must be consumed as it is given to us, the good and the bad. This is why each moment we have must be wrung of its fullest potential. Squeeze the very best we can out of it.

So today, do what you need and want to do. Do something useful, whether that means running through a field just for the sheer joy of it, or experiencing the moment vicariously through your children and locking it within your heart. Try to live so that at the end of the day, when you lay down to sleep, you can rest with the satisfaction of knowing that not only have you been blessed with that time, but that time was filled with blessings, too.

As Always - Enjoy Your Life!
