Rather than think of the years past and things that I still want to do before I die, I want to live in the present moment, and rest in the notion that everything in this life is temporary, including time. I have eternity--never ending life--waiting for me when my time on earth comes to an end. Thus, I must live in such a way that matters, make choices that have eternal significance, and not worry about how to portray my moments to the world. Rather capture them in my heart. Whether 2014 is a tough year or an amazing year, I will count it a blessed year for the little moments that I'm given. Moments like these...
|Silas saw his first "snow day" just a few flurries in our Georgia cold winter. Low temp of 4 degrees!|
|I love having my buddy to get excited about the flurries with me. Though he doesn't look too excited here.|
|This little monkey always knows how to make me laugh.|
|Silas' serious face. He is watching his sign language video. Gets him focused every single time.|
|He knew he looked cool with his faux-hawk.|
|This little nine-month old will be walking before we can say Si-man.|
