Special Moments

What is a special moment?

Recently, I had a discussion with acquaintances where the following question was posed:

“What is a special moment in your life?”

The responses they gave listed once-in-a-lifetime moments such as:

— When my child was born

— When I married my spouse

— When I graduated from school

— When I took the trip of a lifetime

Reflection and Revelation

When I went home, I had a discussion with myself.


I can choose to exist while waiting for three special moments a year.

Or I can choose to find the special moment in each second of life.

Thankfully, I know which gives me a life worth living.

What ordinary moment is special for you?

  1. I’m with you, Joni! My life is beyond belief busy right now, but I can choose to enjoy each moment I get with the people around me, and be grateful God supplies the energy I need to get it all done. I can’t even look ahead or think of what I would do if I had the time to do it. Because, right now I don’t. But if you check out the immediate world around you, there are some pretty awesome things.

    • Thank you for sharing, Jane. I hope your life calms enough so you can take a breath and enjoy!

  2. Joni,
    After coming close to death in 2004–LAD “widow maker” 99.9% blocked upon arrival at the hospital—even the moments that have brought me the most pain I’ve ever experienced in my life are worth it because they brought new life to so many aspects of my life. Every single second is a gift and an opportunity to do something to bring glory to my gracious and loving God. This is a good reminder to remember that!
    Thank you my friend!!

    • Thank you for sharing part of your story. I’m so thankful you healed and are continuing to do what God wants every day. I appreciate you.
