the best is yet to come.

Do you believe it? The best is yet to come.

You know I get the daily thoughts from Henri. Here’s today’s. Oh, HENRI! What a great inspiration for a NEW YEAR.

Living the Moment to the Fullest

Patience is a hard discipline. It is not just waiting until something happens over which we have no control: the arrival of the bus, the end of the rain, the return of a friend, the resolution of a conflict. Patience is not a waiting passivity until someone else does something. Patience asks us to live the moment to the fullest, to be completely present to the moment, to taste the here and now, to be where we are. When we are impatient we try to get away from where we are. We behave as if the real thing will happen tomorrow, later and somewhere else. Let’s be patient and trust that the treasure we look for is hidden in the ground on which we stand.

That last line. So good. That’s kind of been my goal for the past few months and continuing on into the new year. Maybe I’ll blog more this year. Maybe I’ll remember to take a probiotic every day. I’m hoping to memorize 24 Bible verses this year and count my way to 1000 gifts. But overall, I hope I fall deeper in love with Jesus and discover the truth in that last line up there…to be patient and trust that the treasure I look for is hidden in the ground on which I stand.

Joy to you in 2013.
