A Momentous Perspective
See, I am doing something new! Now it springs forth. - Isaiah 43:19 NAB
We are wowed by the spectacular shower of color that bursts forth in a fireworks display. In that spontaneous sparkling eruption, we think not of the previously dark sky nor of how murky the firmament soon may look. Instead, we gaze upon the fabulous flash with undistracted delight.
"Live in the moment," may sound cliche. Yet do we ever tarnish a beautiful moment by dwelling on the past or fearing the future?
Lord, help us to relish the beauty found in the current moment. Photo: Lisa Livezey, "Flash Fourth," 2023
