Staying in the Moment

No passports. Our flights for 6:45 AM today were canceled yesterday and rescheduled for... ?? Actually, this time we'll wait until we have the passports in hand before rescheduling again. I love when stuff like this happens in life -- there's no better way to not only be reminded to stay in the moment but, uh, what else are you going to do? Someone I know asked me yesterday, "So... you were supposed to be in Germany right now -- what do you think you would be doing if you were there?"

I said, "But I'm not in Germany. I'm here."

He didn't give up. "Yes, but you're flight was supposed to leave last Thursday! What would you be doing right now?"

I didn't give up either. "In this moment, I'm here. I have no idea what would've been. I only know this moment."

So that's where we're at. The last 5 days have been some of the most incredible days ever! We said some extremely important goodbyes that otherwise would have been missed. In a way, I feel like God gifted us with "bonus days." Yes, we can hardly wait to begin our new chapter in Germany. But in the meantime, I am waiting EXPECTANTLY for all that God has for us moment by moment where we are right now. I know He has much for us -- I want to embrace all of it.

Blessings on your day!
