Lyrics: Miracle of the Moment

I've decided that I need to post some of the song lyrics that I've heard lately that have encouraged me or helped me. The first is Stephen Curtis Chapman's Miracle of the moment. These in particular hit home:

So breathe it in and breathe it out
Listen to your heartbeat
There's a wonder in the here and now
It's right there in front of you
And I don't want you to miss the miracle of the moment

And if it brings you tears
Then taste them as they fall
And let them soften your heart

And if it brings you laughter
Then throw your head back
And let it go, let it go
You gotta let it go

Schaefer guys tend to be a little, uh, uptight about how things go. There's a right way for things to go and if they don't go that way (they frequently don't), we get a little, uh, frazzled. Those who know us know that's a little, uh, understated.

These lyrics helped me see that wile I was worked up about getting things right, I was missing the moments. While I was fuming about not having things just so, life was passing by.

So now, I try to hear that song in my head, and breathe in and breathe out as I feel my temperature rise. I try to look around and see the wonder, right there in front of me. There's an awful lot of it, if you'll let yourself notice.
