pondering life

Lately I've been thinking about life.  I think people start doing that around the holidays and near the end of the year.  At least I do.

This new year that's approaching is going to bring along a lot of changes.  Such 18th birthday.  High school graduation.  Full time college schedule...  I can't believe it's already here.  How did that happen?  Where did the time go?

People always say, make the best of every moment.  Capture it.  Live it.  Seize it.  I truly desire to do that.  Especially now when it feels like life is in fast forward.  But how do I do that?  I want to remember everything.  But is that even possible?

Friday night I had several of my friends over for a sleep over and at one point in the night we were being goofy and jumping on the beds to the sound of Tobymac's Christmas CD.  One of my friends leans over and says, "Remeber this moment."  Sometimes you just need a little reminder, you know.  We get so caught up in everything we seem to forget to remember.

So, my goal, at least for now while life is flashing by at breakneck speed, I want to stop, sit, and remember.

Psalm 46:10, "Be still and know that I am God."

P.S. iLove favorites will be up in the next couple days.  And I'm going to put the challenge on hold until after New Years. :)


  1. Mmhm, yes. "We get so caught up in everything we seem to forget to remember." Katie, that is so true. =)

    As we remember each moment we also need to give thanks for each moment. Something that I've been thinking about recently that goes along with your thoughts. This post is one that really spoke to my heart and challenged me on that.
    "To live with unreasonable gratitude
    And in so doing, to live fully
    Beyond the threshold of joy."

    Have a wonderful evening, Kaite! =)

    Love in Christ,
