Word for the Week – Present
Last night my youngest daughter and I were baking peanut butter cookies, it had been a long day for me. We have new furniture coming, and all day I had been busy in the house preparing by finishing some painting, moving old furniture, organizing, cleaning, etc…. When she asked to bake cookies, I really wanted to say no. But, it was important to her.
We started mixing the cookies and putting them on the pan. She was going slow. I found myself thinking, I can do this faster myself. Baking the cookies was just one more thing to check off on my to-do list. But then I realized it will only take a few extra minutes to let her help. Slow down and enjoy the moment. Be present.
In our busy world and frequent rush to get from place to place, we often miss the everyday beauty right in front of us and the special moments we can have with our children.
Take time every day to be present with your family and with your friends. Your phone will wait, your Facebook update is not that important. Be present with those you love right here. Right now.
Promises from God
The story of Mary and Martha reminds of us be present. Luke 10: 41-42, “But the Lord answered her, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.”
Remember to take time and be present. Time with your children, family and friends will be your memories for a lifetime. Don’t miss the special moments because you were there, but not present.
