Precious Moments

Sometimes a precious moment isn't a moment of joy. Sometimes it's a moment of heart ache or even heart break.

Sometimes it's the gentle motion of stroking hair.

Sometimes it's prayers whispered in the darkness.

It can be a moment of locked eyes.

A shared song.

An inside joke.

Sometimes it's hours in the kitchen, bustling with great friends, loud noises and tasty foods.

It's standing on the shore looking out over endless water.

It's sunrise.


A brilliant enormous moon in the dead of winter.

It's candles and flowers and notes.

Sometimes it's sharing the silence.

A precious moment isn't always predictable or obvious.

A birth.

A homecoming.

A forever union.

Sometimes it's tears on the kitchen table.

Sometimes it comes in a phone call just because.

It's laughter.

It's comfort.

It's peace and grace and love all wrapped up in one single breath.

This is a taste. A little sip of precious moments in my life.

What are yours?
