Savoring Each Day...

One of the biggest things that parenting has taught me so far is how to better rest and savor each day.  Your children are growing all of the time and learning new things each day.  If you don't sit and watch, listen and enjoy, you truly will miss out on seeing them grow as people.  The past few weeks we have been out and about a lot since the weather has been so nice.  Here are a couple of pictures that make me smile!

Cars!
I also love the fact that you as an adult can now go again to playgrounds, parks, pools etc. and you have an excuse to go!  It has always seemed silly to me that once you become an adult you cannot do simple things such as these to have fun.  Or even more silly is the idea that adults are not to have fun.  So much of adult life is cleaning, meeting deadlines and a lot of other things we would rather not do.  Living simply is the way to go! 

 It says in Matthew 6:34 (NIV) "Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own."

I was recently studying this verse and realized that many times when I am worrying it is not so much what I am afraid of but what I am afraid of not getting.  We all want the best in this life but most of the time we don't know what that is for us.  However, God's plan is good and perfect.  After realizing how much time we waste by worrying and how little control we have over things in our life, you start to realize what a gift God has given us to just live each day for what it is!  Go out and enjoy each day to the fullest!
