All Those Distant Afternoons

September 14, 2016

light-20 light-8

It's five thirty in the afternoon, but time is the last thing on my mind. There's a pair of worn hiking shoes resting leisurely in the bed of leaves below a swinging, green hammock. Every few moments, a lulling breeze sweeps over the tree tops, rustling a chorus of leaves in the flourishing, sun-flecked overhang above. Somewhere nearby my man is climbing trees. And I'm content to soak it all in - the beauty, the warmth of the forest - holding onto the last few moments of Summer before they slip away into Autumn. These are the times I really understand what it means to live in the moment - to simply be. To bask in the glory and magnificence of the work of our Creator, and to receive a glimpse of the sweet gifts which He has given to us - human relationships, moments, time.
