Enjoy the Present/Prayer Request for Joanne Heim

If you’re like me you may have a tendency of thinking ahead of yourself. I don’t mean to, but I get anxious and those wheels in my brain start rolling and next thing you know I’m caught up in this web of anxiety. Today I read that another blogger http://thesimplewife.typepad.com/ Joanne Heim suffered a stroke. My heart ached for this lovely woman, her husband and two daughters. I took a moment to pray for their family and started thinking about how life can change in an instant. Time is such a precious commodity. Every second we have breath is an opportunity to love one another, share our time, and be productive in doing the will of Christ. Life isn’t about multi-tasking and making your home the most organized on the block, but it is about fully enjoying the present and maximizing every moment we are blesssed with.Truthfully, I don’t always do that. I can be easily distracted and find myself wasting hours on things that don’t really matter. Self examination is essential if we hope to grow as Christians. I know that in my own life I’ll be closely examining my own spiritual growth, my tendencies, and if I am living with intention.

I pray for the Heim family and encourage you all to do the same. Please go to the site, her husband has asked for some specific prayer regarding her current condition.
