It Matters

I have written poetry since I was a child. I found this quote on Pinterest that explains what poetry is to me. I don’t know the author of this quote, but I love it.

” Poetry is what happens when your mind stops working,

and for a moment, all you do is feel. “


A place.

A smell.

A sight.

A song.

Feelings rush in –

The moment slows and freezes.

A thought.

A vision.

A memory.

A sound.

Time stands still –

Nothing else matters.

Our lives are filled with all of these moments.

Our bodies just skin that carries our souls.

Slow down.

Take time –

for the stuff that really matters.

Breathe in

Breathe out

The good and the bad.

Life is a gift.

Each moment, it matters.

The time we are given is not just for ourselves.

When Memories Are All You Have Left

 Day 4 of 31 days of writing.

What BEING PRESENT looks like
What BEING PRESENT looks like

Invincible. Forever. Tomorrow.

Invincible..We aren’t.

Forever..They aren’t. Not on this earth. Only in our hearts. Only in Heaven. Only if we are true followers of Christ.

Tomorrow..May not come.

Time is a funny thing.

We say:

“I’ll go see them tomorrow.”

“They’ll always be around.”

“He always pulled through before, so he’ll pull through again.”

“I’ll do this or that… Tomorrow.”

In the bible it says in James 4:13,14 ~ Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. 

We don’t know what tomorrow holds. Only God knows.

We have today. This moment. That’s what we have.

I want to be present in each moment. Make a difference with the moments I am given. Really BE all there.

Because when memories are all that one has left, you realize the value in the moment.

I hope you’ll continue to join me on this 31 day journey of Being Present In Real Life. Click here to see the original post with all of the DAYS attached.
