a week of NOWS ~ #50

My word for 2018 is focus, which requires paying attention to the moment – the now. So, this year, I’ll be taking note of experiences I may have missed, without focus. Many may seem to be BGO’s (blinding glimpses of the obvious), but hey, I might have missed them.

Here’s this week of NOWS:

that lavender really does ease my tension;

how much I appreciate people who decorate their home for Christmas;

watching a pair of cardinals work together;

that I’m feeling Mom’s absence this year than last;

watching Bloss simply.feel.the.breeze;

Viv’s addiction (spiced pecans from Vivian Howard, recipe here);

how much fun buying a new toilet can be;

Krista Tippett’s interview with Walter Brueggemann;

a perfectly toasted slice of bread;

Bloss, simply.feeling.the.breeze;

that difference between taking time and making time for what and who’s important;

Oprah Winfrey’s interview/podcast with Elie Wiesel about living with an open heart;

the humbling grace of witnessing a faithful servant become an ordained priest; and

that.full.moon over Lake Waccamaw.

What NOWS did you experience or witness this week?

  1. I sat in my car and had my son stop me – Dad don’t get out until I tell you something : “Dad I still don’t know about all this Christian stuff, but I do know I want to live my life like one and live a life that is not all about me. I want a wife and a relationship like yours and moms not like xyz and not like this girl and mine (that he dated briefly.)” That was my now moment and it was awesome !

  2. wOw! John, thanks SO much for sharing that sacred NOW between you amd your son. awesome indeed!
