Precious Memories

“but they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:31‬ ‭KJV‬

Over the past few weeks, I have learned of the deaths of four of my classmates I graduated with from high school. There were around 115 in our class, and we were like a large family. We were a really close and caring class. At our class reunion, we were reminiscing about the wonderful friendships we had shared. It reminded me that time is precious and should be spent wisely. Our time spent in God’s Word is valuable and necessary to our growth in our walk with God. I would like to share a poem I think is truly a blessing and excellent advice

Each Moment Is Precious by Pat A. Fleming

Live in the moment,
Just take it all in.
Pay attention to everything,
Right there and right then.

Don’t let your mind wander
To what’s coming next.
Cherish this moment
And give it your best.

Don’t let tomorrow
Make you rush through today,
Or too many great moments
Will just go to waste.

And the person you’re with,
In that moment you share,
Give them all of your focus;
Be totally there.

Laugh till it hurts,
Let the tears drop.
Fill up each moment
With all that you’ve got.

Don’t miss the details;
The lesson is there.
Don’t get complacent;
Stay sharp and aware.

It can take but a moment
To change your life’s path.
And once it ticks by,
There is no going back.

In just 60 seconds,
You may make a new friend.
Find your true love,
Or see a life start or end.

You become who you are
In those moments you live.
And the growth’s not in taking
But in how much you give.

Life is just moments,
So precious and few.
Whether valued or squandered,
It’s all up to you!

Heavenly Father, we praise you and thank you for the protection, love, and mercy that you offer to us. Please hold on to us with a firm loving grip as we continue on our journey here on earth. Help us to be more like Jesus and and help us treasure our time with you Lead us and guide us to spend the precious time You give us wisely and in ways that glorify You Amen
