Fully present in the present

We are here in this unique and irreplaceable now. The moment-by-moment present cannot fully be experienced and enjoyed if it is spent focused on the past or the future. And the present moment is not just a when; it’s also a where. If we are thinking about what is happening somewhere else we are not fully present in the time and the place that the Lord has made for us right now.  We discover the day’s joy as we choose to be present when and where we are now.

Lord, may I this day, all day, discover the joy that is now.
