"I may not be perfect, but Jesus thinks I'm to die for."

"Sieze the day
Sieze whatever you can
'Cause life slips away
Just like hour-glass sand
Sieze the day!
Pray for grace from God's hand
That nothing will stand in the way...
Sieze the day." --Carolyn Arends "Sieze the Day"

I love this song. Seizing the day is so difficult. But, as always, being in the Boundary Waters makes everything seem extremely clear. Surrounded by nature, the world in perfect harmony, it is easy to savor each moment - a gorgeous sunset over a lake, a small flower, a deer disappearing quietly through the branches of a tree...

The trouble is keeping this mindset when returning home to my busy life. It won't be easy, for sure. But I feel obligated to try.
