Snapshots

Description

Life is a collection of snapshots: instants that make up days that turn into years that develop us into the people we become. Decide to create snapshots that are sweet and good, honoring your Creator and building years worthwhile.

Life is a collection of snapshots: instants that make up days that turn into years that develop us into the people we become.

Some moments are sharp and good. And so we capture them—wringing each morsel dry and savoring the remnants of sweet. But some are dark—shadowy images that we strain to see through and then hurry up to forget.

Dark, sweet, shadowy, sharp: What would you see if you took one right now—a snapshot of this once-in-a-lifetime flash of existence? Are your moments becoming days worth remembering? Are you assembling meaningful years?

Choose to live aware. To be conscious of the moments that mold you (noting, of course, that moments are not sorted—they all mold you).

Do your snapshots reveal wise habits that usher your heart closer to God’s? Pictures of communion with Him—of loving others and selfless living? If so, relish them. Do they expose habits and behaviors that suck days to a dingy, greyish dull? Images of greed, bad attitudes, or wasting your gifts? If so, replace them.

Decide that your snapshots will swell with patterns of health and growth. Choose to live wisely and create snapshots that are sweet and good, honoring your Creator and building years worthwhile.
