I decided to head out just before dusk to the sea. I simply needed to breathe the sea air, and listen to the gentle lap of the tide coming in. The last cry of the gulls. A moment just to be, at the end of a day. A day I will never see again. Such magical wonder in that.
As I strolled, I thought about things, you know, the things that matter. I have noted in these last days, that mostly we look forward. Rarely able, to truly be in the moment. Early winter, we were looking forward to Christmas, for some with great anticipation, and naturally, and sadly for some, not.
Christmas came and went. And now, we look to Spring. To 'plans'. Busy, busy, busy, perhaps not in the doing, but in our minds. When will we learn. l ask myself. Someone close shared this …
"As human beings we can become so busy with the 'doing' of life that subconsciously the 'being' part of who we are has disappeared.
This friend speaks a lot of wisdom. And, as a counsellor we agree on much. Let's not wish Winter away, but embrace this season in all its teachings. It was given to us for a reason. A time to be still and listen. And, to look for the light where it may be found.
MEDITATE ON THESE THINGS
1 CORINTHIANS 15:51-52
Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.
For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
KEEP ME IN THE MOMENT —Jeremy Camp
