The Moments of Grace

One day your babies crawling
the next they’re 17
you scratch your head and wonder
what happened in between?

Hurry’s a race that’s never ending
you’re rushing all the time
and missing those special moments
where life’s unbound, profound, sublime.

Life becomes one endless hurry,
you run from day to day
soon weeks and months are past you
and years have got away;

and all that you remember
are regrets, what might’ve been
each moment past you barren
if you could only do again.

But there’s more to life than aging
if you’ll stop and look you’ll see
it’s in the blessings of the moments
that you learn to thrive, to be;

for it’s there that life is hidden
embracing moments helps you see
its the simple things that change you
and transform and set you free.

Simple things like dust from angels
as it sparkles in the air
when the sun shine’s through the prism
of the glass that’s everywhere;

or the winking of the rosebud
as the petals flex their wings
bursting forth their magic fragrance
as the bees hum and dance, and sing.

So slow down, enjoy each moment
created just for you
and marvel at the wonder’s
of grace-sightings there to view.

And the more we enjoy the moments
the more thankful we become
and soon we’re moment-seekers
amazed and humbled with what God has done.

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
