All Here

“Slow the torrent by being all here.”
~ Ann Voskamp, "One Thousand Gifts" video session 2
 
Let us learn the joy of
all here
 
every moment
every day
minds not racing ahead
to what might be
or lagging behind
in what has passed
but full
in-the-moment living
 
For here
in the moment
time slows
 
And here
in the moment
we see, really see
the gifts each moment
has to bring
 
We see them clear
when we are
all here
 
 
“Teach us to number our days carefully
so that we may develop wisdom in our hearts.”
Psalm 90:12 HCSB
