Right here. Right now.

Now. This moment. There are joys here. Sights, sounds, smells, textures – and sometimes taste, can be found in the now. Close your eyes and hear the birds singing. Feel how silky the dog’s ear is. Feel the breeze upon your face. Notice the variations of color in┬áthe trees, the hills, the sky. Savor the sweet and the salty delights that cross your palette. Smell the honeysuckle, the linen fresh of the clothesline. We are surrounded by beauty; the mark of love is everywhere.

Love is in this moment. Bask in it. There is just now and you are an expression of love and completely whole. You bless the world by just being. Slow down and be. Be still and know that God is love and so are you.
