Kodak Moments

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118-24

Kodak moments. Aren't they great? I love to look through photographs from past vacations, honor days, field trips, sporting events, family gatherings, holidays, and more! And when I have time, I enjoy scrapbooking - to really showcase our precious pictures. As I was putting together a recent scrapbook, I noticed that almost every picture I'd taken featured smiling, happy folks. Some were posed "cheesy" pictures, but even the candid shots showed intense happiness.

Like the commercial says, those are the moments you cherish. Sometimes you have to hold on to those happy memories to make it through until the next Kodak moment. Life is difficult, and traumatic events can uproot your entire life in an instant. So we need to live each day mindful that these are precious times - treasured times that are gone like the mist in the morning. Enjoy each moment with your children - even the not-so-pleasant ones - and thank God for the Kodak moments.
