Today, I’m very thankful for the “simple things” of life. Recently, an older friend back in the States died of a heart attack.
On Sunday he had been at church, and they took a group picture. The day before he died.
It was a shock to hear that he had died.
These last few months, I’ve been pondering on the fact that we don’t know—any of us—when our time will be up.
“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted…” –Ecclesiastes 3:1-2
So today I’m very thankful for each precious moment I get with my family. Being with them could be considered a “simple thing”, but in my eyes it’s a big privilege. We don’t know when one of us may be gone—for ever. I’m delighting in each moment as it comes.
Savouring the special moments.
