This Cherokee proverb is often a much-needed reminder for me. If I could tattoo it on a loved one’s forehead so that I could see it all the time, I would. 🙂 I have had to settle for putting it on my refrigerator as I do visit that frequently.
I especially need these words during this season. Sometimes I get caught up in expectations of how this holiday season should look and comparisons to past holidays. I need to remember that today is all that we have and it is a gift. And that, of course, leads me to think about God’s gift to all of Us-God’s love which came into this world as the baby Jesus.
So instead of allowing myself to be mired in how I wish some things were different this holiday season, I focus on the one thing that remains constant- God’s love and presence in my life.
