MOMENTS

James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
 
This verse tells us that our life is short.  So short as a matter of fact that it seems like it is a mere vapor.  The reality of that hits me more as I grow older and my health deteroriates. It doesn't seem like so long ago that I was starting school. I now get senior citizen discounts without having to ask for them.  It went so quickly.
 
The days, the months and even the years seemed to have gone by so quickly and now I have a lot more memories than I do dreams.  The most precious memories though are not of days, months, or years.  They are of moments.
 
The moment I remember seeing my wife for the first time is indellibly printed on my mind.  The moments that my son and my daughter were born and the first times they looked up and said daddy. Brief moments that mean the world to me.
 
So many times we are so intent on filling our days, planning our months and living out our years that we forget the moments.  The special moments that make us smile.  The ones that make us feel special or sometimes make us laugh at ourselves.  These are what make up the substance of that vapor that is our life.
 
Maybe instead of telling someone to have a great day we should tell them, "I hope your day is filled with special moments."
