Time is marked in varied increments, most of our lives being measured in years, months, days, hours, minutes, seconds, and moments. A moment is defined as a very brief period of time which can be rather vague, but yet can bear both incredible anticipation or life changing consequences. A moment is like a blink of an eye in which one can experience amazing sensory input. It is so satisfying to capture a moment in a photograph as it will never come again. Blowing soap bubbles with grandchildren in the backyard gave me such a poignant reminder of the fragility of life itself, and how vitally important it is to live within that context, not fearfully, but rather in abundant joy, a joy that comes through a personal relationship with God.
|A soap bubble the moment before it popped|
"It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed." I Corinthians 15:22
