Day 28: Still in the Moment


I overslept this morning.

Could it be because I slept like a baby,

because we are watching a baby,

our precious grandson

since Friday.

And oh what a gift,

to spend this time with

this precious little boy

who just smiles

with his whole body

when he sees you.

Right now I am still watching him as he sleeps,

on a little camera

to make sure that he is okay.

I look forward to his first stirring,

when he awakes,

so my husband and I

can enjoy him

as he consumes our hearts.

This little boy

has taught me

To be still in the moment

because that

is what I have experienced

that is

what I have learned

is the secret

to

being still in the moment.

Yup,

Quite simple~

to be still is

being still in the moment

Being still even when I am feeding him

Being still even when I bathe him

Being still even when I walk him in the stroller

Being still even when I play with him on the floor

Being still even when I am reading him a book

Being still even when I rock him to sleep

being still in the moment

Is

being still in the moment

because

that is all we have~

the moment.

This little boy

has no worries

because

he is being watched every second

even when he sleeps

as I stare at the camera.

He is fed

homemade food

that his mother

prepared for him.

Only the best for this precious little boy

because he is

precious

in our sight

and

because

he is precious in

His Sight~

the same sight

of who we are precious in~

Our Creator.

We may not feel precious

We may not feel watched over

but we are

every second of every day

even when we sleep.

be still and know

that

God is God

and that

we are

His

and nothing will ever change that.

As tears fill my eyes,

because of how filled my heart is at this moment,

as I watch with great expectancy for this little boy to awake,

I also know that tomorrow morning

we won't greet him in the morning

but his precious mother and father

will watch with great expectancy for this little boy to awake

so that

they will

be still in the moment

Because

they will be

being still in the moment.

So today

And tommorrow

And the next day

And the next...

be still in the moment

knowing

that

God is God

and

that

you are

His~

and that will never change

because

The Lord watches over you— the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.

The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

Psalm 121:5-8
