Karen Ehman talks about 'Embracing the Now'. About being thankful in whatever circumstances...wonder where I've heard that before? This is MY 'now' that fills my mind in this particular minute: A computer of my own to use when I want, how I want… A freshly made cappuchino to drink as quickly – or as slowly – as I want An email conversation with my sister-in-law that reminds me of the blessings of family. A breakfast with a sweet friend, which sets me up for a relaxed weekend A room to prepare for an unknown guest – the friend of a friend – the blessings of a stranger A house that waits for a dearly loved husband to come home. A home that longs for the return of the ‘flown-the-nesters’ And a job, done with the strength God gives, full of dear colleagues and eager children. Just a glimpse of my ‘now’.
