A gentle whisper from the LORD...

"Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper." 1 Kings 19:11-12

Number Our Days

A quiet reminder echoed in my thoughts today.
A reminder that the ordinary moments of today....

will soon be distant yet precious moments in pasttimes.

Soak them in...
Stop to enjoy...
Remember...for they won't always be this way.

Someday they won't thrive on coloring shapes...bigger and better hobbies will replace washable markers and crayons.

Taking baths will be for little girls...time for make up and curlers and fashion.


Puppy towels will no longer be fun and exciting...just your basic white towel will do.


The mini soccer goal won't hold them any longer...nor will the desire to rest inside one.


Things that seem hard today...like studying and moving away and youngsters running all around the house...will become precious and sweet and a time to reflect on as a time of growing.


"Teach us to number our days,
   that we may gain a heart of wisdom."
Psalm 90:12
