“Thankful for Every Moment” 

A few years ago there was a wonderful song in the contemporary Christian music realm
entitled “Every Moment” by artist Joy Williams.  Both moving and uplifting, the words reminded listeners to cherish each moment of life, to not let minutes be wasted unnoticed.  To sum it up:  every moment is precious.

My sister posted a challenge on Facebook recently that expressed the same message.  She was concerned about so many people making Christmas plans as early as two months ahead, and reminded friends not to simply pass over Thanksgiving to rush on to Christmas.  She spoke of beautiful memories of loved ones now in Heaven, of how deeply she missed them and treasured those memories now.

It is true that this world is not our ultimate “home”; still, we spend our temporal lives here, and we do become quite attached to it.  We cling to the dear memories of ones we have known and loved here, even as we wonder about their new life in Eternity.  As easy as it is to mourn while missing them during family gatherings and celebratory seasons, it is also a perfect time to recall joyous times spent with them, and celebrate the gift God gave of placing you in their lives.

The bridge and final chorus of “Every Moment” are as follows:

Running through yesterday into tomorrow
Don’t let it just drift away
Forget about tying the hands of time
Give every minute to the One who gave us today
Don’t let go
Hold onto every moment
Always know
Hold onto every moment that You can


As we run into the busy events surrounding our nation’s holiday of Thanksgiving, please pause for just a moment to truly thank God for all He has done for you, all He has given you.  You are truly blessed.

Psalm 95
 1 Oh come, let us sing to the LORD!
         Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
 2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;
         Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.
 3 For the LORD is the great God,
         And the great King above all gods.
 4 In His hand are the deep places of the earth;
         The heights of the hills are His also.
 5 The sea is His, for He made it;
         And His hands formed the dry land.
6 Oh come, let us worship and bow down;
         Let us kneel before the LORD our Maker.
 7 For He is our God,
         And we are the people of His pasture,
         And the sheep of His hand.

Blessings of peace~
