Perspective on a moment . . .

Each day is filled with measurable units of time . . . 24 hours, each hour filled with 60 minutes; 1,440 minutes, each minute filled with 60 seconds, and I have come to realize that each of those time periods is filled with moments. It is the moments I recall more often than the hours or days and I am just beginning to become aware of how important it is to pay attention to the moments in each day.

I came across some pictures I took November 22, 2012, at Lockwood Park in Newport, Arkansas, and it really illustrated the impact of choosing what to pay attention to in the collection of what I saw that day, thoughts that came to me as I reviewed the images, and the realization that I miss SO much as I go through a day!

This brought me to the thought that Life should be a story of moments . . . it’s all about perspective—-how you see each moment as you slow down and pause each moment, explore each moment, and live each moment fully, it will impact you differently than the usual rushed “fly-by” moments—-perspective gained through choices made . . . moment by moment

About Jeanne

a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6. My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)! I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting! Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
