Second Chance Moments

There is no replica of the moments we are given. They come and go in an instant and if we do not live each moment to it’s fullest potential, we miss out. 

But this does not mean we can not learn from it. We absolutely can. Once a moment is gone and we come to the realization that we could have and should have done better, then that missed opportunity has become a learning experience.

It’s like a drop of rain, waiting to fall from a tree limb. It sits in time. The moment only lasts so long before it moves on. Once it does, there’s no getting it back. The rain drop falls, but can never return to that moment before.

So, when find yourself on the edge of a moment, much like that drop of rain…and time passes, and the moment ends;

God sees you.

And when you find yourself, much like that drop of rain, not knowing how you got there nor knowing how to stop the fall, realize this…

God not only sees you, but knows you and understands you…before, during and after the fall.

No, we can not go back to the exact moment where we once were, but…I do believe God gives us second chance moments, not for His sake, but for ours.

    • Thank you soooo much. Truly appreciate your support and realigning. I haven’t been on this platform for a while and hope to get back into a writing routine. You have encouraged me! Thank you!😀

  1. Such beautifully written prose. Almost like a song, i can visually see what you are talking about, although the great photography may have something to do with satisfying all senses.

    • Than you so much! I truly appreciate your kind comments. I’ve been gone from this platform for a while and so glad to be back and writing and sharing on here again. I really look forward to reading your future posts and getting to know each other better through our writing. 😀

      • I know what you mean about being gone for so long from writing…it seems like there has been far too much else more important on which to concentrate; I’ve been doing a lot of babysitting and have been slacking on this part of my life. I hope to dedicate more time into this, so i hope to see you around!

  2. I love it. Thanks for sending it to me.
