moments like these
i have been trained, we have been trained, to always be looking ahead to the next moment. we rush and rush and rush, always looking for one little something more. one little something more, to make us happy, satisfied and successful.
and then, nights like tonight happen. ones that are woven into our lives to remind us of what is important. as we gathered with our church family, raising the roof in a halloween hootenanny, time stood still.
it was loud. it was crazy. and it was beautiful. a kind of beautiful that brings tears to your eyes and overflows your heart with gratitude. as i stood back, in attempt to take it all in, i had an overwhelming feeling of peace, God's presence and a deep understanding that we have been blessed.
on this halloween night, i am thankful. i am thankful that time stood still. thankful, that our children get to be a part of something bigger than themselves. and, thankful, most of all, for moments like these.
