“…what one calls interruptions
are precisely one’s real life —
the life God is sending
… day by day.” — CS Lewis
You go through the day
spaces where life actually
happens, when routine is stopped
and your list of “very important things”
fades because someone pauses,
holds back in hesitation, waiting,
gauging your response —
don’t ignore this unspoken
invitation — stay in the moment!
Life is most fully lived
in the in-between, when tasks
are put on hold and we soak
in the refreshing presence
of other souls.
Stop, look into the eyes,
and thank God that you have time
to really attend another human,
to expose your heart, to grapple
in thought, the silly and the profound,
to grow in the beautiful act
of giving and receiving. It is within
such pauses that our most blessed
memories are born, warming
our days in the coming years
just as gloriously as the morning
and evening sun.
