‘Renewed moments’ – is a phrase I picked up on when I read a post of a faithful contributor in my blogosphere space.
It stuck a little, and as I thought about it I wondered if it is an accurate phrase, can a moment be renewed ?
A moment is a moment, it comes and it goes. And if you want it to linger you sit very still or else, like holding water in your hand it just flows on, away and the moment passes.
It is a time when you are very present ‘in the moment’, and become aware of more than just yourself and where you are at in that particular moment in time.
Moments can become eternal.
Moments can become milestones. It is a time when you acknowledge that from that moment something changed. Change-moments can be both terrifying and sublime.
Recognition frame moments, and can happen in an instant. The moment you become aware you hit new ground.
Moments can be refreshing, bring relief and laughter – that change perspectives.
Moments can be enriching, if you recognise them when they happen. Are they little signs along the way of life ? Signs we often miss for all the hurry-scurry in life and its demands.
But can moments be renewed ? I think yes, for where else do we keep our moments but in our memory. So they can be recalled, and relived and re evaluated in an instant.
Aren’t moments wonderful. ? They come they go, and they live on. It is up to us to recognise and capture them so that we can put value on them.
And when all our moments are gathered together, they make up the patchwork beauty of our lives.
Savour your moments, polish them, strip them of their uglinesses, frame them, and appreciate them, they are little gifts from God.
So take one moment please, be still, and cherish the moment.
