Day 20: Live The Moment
She held HIM in her arms
and it became the most precious MOMENT
that was tattooed on her heart forever.
There HE was.
THE BABY that the angel told MARY
that she would be carrying in her womb.
And there HE was.
That one MOMENT in time
that no one can ever erase from her,
even if they didn't BELIEVE
that THE BABY was the SAVIOR.
Oh those precious MOMENTS that last forever
for they are your precious MOMENTS.
Oh I love those MOMENTS
when you are really in the MOMENT
and you breathe it all in,
so that when that MOMENT comes back
you cry tears of great JOY
because it is your MOMENT
that happened without your knowing it was going to happen.
Like when you are watching a movie
with your grandchildren.
And then you are introduced to your grandson's favorite song
and then it becomes your favorite because it becomes a
precious MOMENT as you hear him sing it
and the words just melt your heart.
And then you keep playing the song
and he sings it with you
and you have a MOMENT that is tattooed on my heart
because the LOVE is so great
and no one can take away that MOMENT.
Then my hubby plays the song
and he and I both have tears in our eyes that are flooding from our hearts
as we think about the precious MOMENTS
we had with him and his sister and his mother and his father.
And then more MOMENTS with
our son and wife and their two children.
MOMENTS come and MOMENTS go,
but MOMENTS are what make up your life.
And because GOD is so gracious HE sends MOMENTS
and all we have to do is
RECEIVE them as a gift.
Grab your MOMENTS.
And now as I look at the manger
and see MARY & JOSEPH and the lamb
huddled over BABY JESUS
I cry tears of JOY for that MOMENT in time
that will never be erased,
no matter how old I get,
because that MOMENT when JESUS was born into my heart
it is tattooed on my heart forever~
because JESUS is more than a MOMENT.
Make JESUS your everlasting MOMENT
because JESUS is more than
"JUST A BABY" (listen to the song below)
