I’ve been hearing a lot of stories in the news about how special today’s date is because it of the way it’s arranged numerically. They say 12/12/12/ is one of those days that those of us who are alive today will never see again in our lifetimes.
When I think about it though, every day is like that. Every year is like that. Every moment, once past, is gone for good. Although we can’t change the past, we can learn from it, be mindful of the present, and look forward to the future. Our time is so important, and sometimes it can be so easy to forget to “smell the roses” in the midst of all of life’s busyness.
So, for these next two minutes and twenty-seven seconds, be intentional with me and chill out to the sounds of the Vince Guaraldi Trio’s Pumpkin Waltz, and think about everything that is going great in your life.
Grace & Peace,
