Concrete Moments

Our lives are full of big and small moments. Big moments- weddings, births, graduation days, milestone birthdays, etc. Small moments- stopping to hear the birds, taking a walk, choosing to have a conversation. The big moments are easy to remember and usually, lots of work or thinking go into those moments. It's the small moments that actually change our course without us knowing. Over a few weeks we can completely change the course of our life and future options or destinations. The decisions we make today really do change the course of our lives.
That being said, not every decision changes our destination.
These concrete moments come every now and then. Sometimes they go by unnoticed. Fortunately, there are days when we take time to pause. In the moments pause we stand on a firm foundation and see clearly. The blizzard of stuff around us slows down and our paths become clear....well, clearer. In those concrete moments courses can be corrected and your whole future can be changed. These moments might be a few seconds or weeks. When we are in those moments make sure you talk to your trusted friends. The people you can share with and that will be completely honest with you. And resist the negative. Resist negative attitudes and the funk we find ourselves in sometimes. Feeling sorry for ourselves or worrying about things gets us NO where. Put your trust and faith in God.
Go in peace and go with God.
