The ONE THING for today

The Day I Ran Across a Duck Dynasty

  •  Genesis 1:20 (NIV) And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the vault of the sky.”

This is an entry from my journal a year ago today; made while taking a hike around the shore of the beautiful lake at Croft State Park:

  • 130109: What I am thankful for today: While walking along the lake shore at Croft State Park I came up on a large flock of ducks on the water.  I hope I never forget the sound of their wings hitting the water as they lifted off from the lake and – flying barely above the water – flew in formation around the lake and then settled back down in a different spot; it was a sacred moment.imagesCA1IZ4WE

The truth is, I did forget it; I had not thought about the event again until this morning and then it all came back and I was able to thank my Lord twice for this special moment.  And should I live, each year when this entry comes back around I will remember again and thank Him.

Life is full of moments like these–freeze them with words and thaw them out once a year and enjoy then again.

The one thing for today? Journal! (as in journal being a verb)
