Life is filled with moments….

the moment you are conceived….

the moment you are born….

the moment you first smile….

the moment you say your first word….

the moment you begin to crawl….

the moment you take your very first step….

the moment you hug your mom and dad….

the moment you tie your own shoestrings….

the moment you write your own name….

the moment you meet your first friend….

the moment when you begin your first day of school…

the moment you are saved…

the moment you reach “the change”….

the moment you have your first crush….

the moment you first hold someone’s hand….

the moment you have your first kiss….

the moment you have your first dance….

the moment you go to prom….

the moment you graduate….

the moment you watch your best friend move away…

the moment you decide what college to attend…

the moment you say “I do”…

the moment you become a parent….

the moment you hug your baby for the first time…

the moment you see your child’s first smile….

the moment you hear their first word….

the moment you watch them take their first step…

the moment you show your child how to tie their own shoestrings…

the moment your child writes their own name…

the moment you take your baby to their first birthday party….

the moment when you take your child to their first day of school…

the moment you witness your child’s salvation…

the moment when you have “the talk”…

the moment you hear your child speak of their first crush…

the moment you see them hold someone’s hand….

the moment you hear they shared their first kiss…

the moment you help them find the perfect prom dress…

the moment you see your young adult in their cap and gown….

the moment you comfort them when their friends move away…

the moment when they read you their college acceptance letter…

the moment you give them away to their love…

the moment you see them holding their baby for the first time…

the moment you still wrap them in your arms….just as your parents did….

Moments may be cherished…

Moments may be forgotten…

Moments may last forever…

Moments may last only an instant…

Moments of regret….

Moments of love….

Moments of heartache….

Moments of life….

Moments of death….

Moments….constant moments….of God’s unconditional….agape love….

Life is filled with many chances, choices, and changes….

Yet in the end…life consists of one simple thing…

Are you living or just existing? Tuesday, Mar 1 2011 

Each day we awake….we open our eyes….we breathe…

We awake with a choice….

A choice to exist…..or a choice to live….

What’s the difference?

To exist is to have life….

To live is to be alive….

Life is the general or universal condition of human existance….

But to be alive….to be alive is to have the quality of life…..to abound…

I don’t want to wake each day to the same routine…

I want to make each day truly matter….

To live like each day is my last…

I refuse to settle.

I think back to the three amazing women I had the priviledge to spend Christmas with….

One showed me that even through heartache….unconditional love exists…

Another showed me that acceptance isn’t everything….but to be true to yourself and to God is what completely matters…

The third showed me that come what may….through pain and fear….I can find strength….I can find courage….I can hold on to hope and faith…

I began on a journey this year….

a journey to chase after my rainbow….

At the end of 2010 I grasped that rainbow….

Though I am fighting the storm coming against me….

I am holding on…

Because I don’t want to just exist…

I want to live like I were dying….

To live my life to the fullest…

To take it all in…

To be happy…

To love…

TO BE ALIVE!!!

Will you choose to exist or to live?  Will you choose to have life or to be alive?

I Hope You Dance
