right here and now

     Every once in a while, I savor a meal. It happened last Friday. I enjoyed the food and the wine. I enjoyed the table setting and the candlelight. I enjoyed the people around the table. I savored it all.

     Today, I want to be intentional about savoring things. I probably won’t savor the whole day or even most of the day, but I will savor parts of the day. And I will keep practicing, because I want savoring to become a habit. I want to learn to take the “bread” of right-here-and-now and give thanks.

“He took bread and gave thanks to God. . . .” Acts 27:35

“Finding peace of mind, and so happiness, right here and now. Learning to live so that we savor each day, waste none of the precious moments God has given us.” John Carmody
