Life Surfing

My family and I are taking a much needed vacation this week. I came to the realization that I have a bad habit of surfing through life like I do on the web. I read a lot of blogs and email and other stuff and I tend to just skim through most everything just getting the main points here and there. Its easy to do life like that, skimming through from one appointment to another, one day to the next just hitting the highlights. I started vacation like that with a plan to get a few activities in, spend some time with the family, and then call it a week. We miss all the in between moments when we do that. God enjoys every moment with us. He know the plans He has for our life, but He wants to live out those plans with us and not miss one second. I am learning to live in the now moment and take into my being the richness, joys, sorrows, learning, and love that He intends for me. So my son and I went hiking through the woods behind our cabin just to see what was back there, and I went kayaking for the first time. I don't know what we will do today, but I can't wait to see what God has in store for me and my family. He is an amazing God. What a priviledge it is to know Him and live in Him.
