We Have this Moment Today

Was just washing dishes this morning & thinking of all the things I have to be thankful for & I was particularly thankful for homeschooling & the fact, like I posted yesterday, that I can let my older kids stay up late these nights & enjoy their time together & not have to worry about getting them up early to go off to school the next morning. That our schedule can be flexible & we can enjoy Chris' time here before he goes back to school. And the whole while I can revel in the fact that they love each other & enjoy each other's company....I know that's a blessing in & of itself. While all this was going through my head, this old Gaither song came to mind & I thought it was worth sharing here today! So, go out & enjoy this day that the Lord has made!! :-)


Hold tight to the sound
of the music of living,
Happy songs from the laughter
of children at play;
Hold my hand as we run
through the sweet fragrant meadows,
Making mem'ries of what was today.

We have this moment
to hold in our hands and to touch
as it slips through our fingers like sand;
Yesterday's gone
and tomorrow may never come,
But we have this moment today.

Tiny voice that I hear
is my little girl calling,
For Daddy to hear
just what she has to say;
And my little son
running there by the hillside,
May never be quite like today.

Tender words, gentle touch
and a good cup of coffee,
And someone who loves me
and wants me to stay;
Hold them near while they're here
and don't wait for tomorrow,
To look back and wish for today.

Take the blue of the sky
and the green of the forest,
And the gold and the brown
of the freshly mown hay;
Add the pale shades of spring
and the circus of autumn,
And weave you a lovely today.
