Enjoying each moment

Had a conversation with a new buddy today.

He said something that is true:  "Life is really short....so it's important to enjoy it."  Though when taken to an extreme, this sentiment can quickly become the meaningless pursuit of hedonism -- that the only good thing is my pleasure...or what makes me happy.

Though, when held in tension with the wholehearted pursuit to live life sacrificially and "love thy neighbour like Jesus did"....this is a truism I can get behind.  My buddy is right...life is short....don't miss out on taking time to enjoy it.

We are SO ENJOYING our time here in Coeur d'Alene

It's the simple things really:
loads of time together


easy runs


time in coffee shops
....and watching our kids explore every part of the establishment 
(yes...we are, occasionally,  "those parents")

Most of all...we are enjoying this season of rest. 
Thanks God.
