Devotions from Judy’s heart

I think my dad’s passing has prompted deep things inside of me. It has reminded me that time is short and each day is a gift to be used and savored. I need to live in the present moment and not rush through many activities and multitasking. Instead of lingering over a cup of coffee in the morning, I am usually up and at it either cooking or cleaning, exercising or something. But at the end of the day, it isn’t about a clean house, more food, more things… it’s my awareness of being in God’s presence and being sensitive to what His Spirit is leading me to do. We miss many wonder moments by rushing and getting on to the next thing. I keep asking the Lord to teach me in this area, and not to feel guilty if I sit for extra minutes to enjoy the sunset.  In eternity, I don’t think we will be rushing about but rather enjoying everything fully that our Father puts before us. Let us get ready for heaven now by taking the time now!
