Missing Moments

Living in the Now seems to be a subject that resurfaces periodically in my mind and heart–don’t live in the future, enjoy the moment, all you have is right now.

I completely believe in the power of Now, in the importance of Now. I am utterly thankful for the Now.

Yet sometimes, I completely miss it.

There is torrential rain out there today; I can’t weed, I can’t run, I can’t even walk my dog. Everybody says how beautiful the storm is, but to me, it is only the reason  I am stuck inside. And that stinks.


And my attitude, it is getting stinkier by the second.


And the rain, it penetrates deep in my soul. And in my wet mess, I miss the moment. And in my soaked mess, I miss eternal truth. And in my drenched mess, I forget to live.

Where is the enjoying the moment now? My living life fully?

I want to pout today. Just leave me alone. And it’s like my soul chooses the rain. Inside and out.

I don’t want to remember the fact that I create my reality with my attitudes. But I do. With every single breath.

And the story on the inside, it becomes the reality on the outside. And the reality hits me: I am not missing my “now.” I am embracing it. I am choosing my pouting. How terrifying.

  1. You make a very valid point. We choose our stinky attitude. WhY? God has blessed us with life and life more abundantly on the inside despite the weather outside. I appreciate your transparence. I love your writing style.You’re very descriptive and relatable.


  2. Your post caused me to smile at your rain inside and out. Yes, at times it does rain on our parade. My dogs know they must go out as duty calls, but how they hate to get their feet wet. I take my umbrella and walk with them. so far our rain has not been in torrents, which your photo indicates, but never the less, we need it so.
