One Moment in Time

The lyrics to the song referred to in the title, which was recorded by Whitney Houston, started going through my mind. I haven’t heard it in a long time and yet those words, “One moment in time” kept playing in my brain.

It is one of those moments you will never forget, for as long as you live, the day that our President, John F. Kennedy, was assassinated and the day the terrorists attacked us from inside our own borders.  They are both etched deep into my mind and heart to remain, for life. The day President Kennedy was shot, I was young and suddenly it felt like the whole world was crashing to a halt. I was sitting at my own desk, my first job, when a man came and said, “My wife just called, she was watching “Days of Our Life” and they made an announcement that President Kennedy has been shot!” How was it possible that the charismatic young man and his beautiful wife in the pink suit, and our country, had been violated?  Our whole country was united in front of our television sets watching as the President was laid to rest, his beautiful wife, face swollen from crying and little John-John saluting the dad that would not be at the Thanksgiving table that year.

It is true that one moment you may be happy and suddenly then a tragedy strikes, but on the positive side you may be in terrible trouble and a miracle happens when you pray and everything is all right once more!

How do you want to remember your ‘One Moment In Time’?  “Each day I live I want to be a day to give the best of me. I’m only one but not alone, my finest day is yet unknown!

I pray that you are blessed and that you are able to make all your ‘moments in time’ the best you can. Philippians 4:13 says, I can do all things through Christ, which strengthens me!  Happy Thanksgiving!
