Are You Really Living Today?


I have been on vacation in Orange County California visiting family the last couple days. Today I happen to notice this painting hanging on the wall in the guest room in which I’m staying. Maybe some of you have seen it before. It’s a beautiful painting called “Living Today” from artist Bonnie Mohr.

The words are a great reminder to appreciate each moment and live each day to its fullest. It’s worth taking a moment to read. On her website, Bonnie says this about the painting:

I have created this painting based on my own personal desire to try and live each day this way. I believe this image will mean something different to everyone as we each walk through life leaving a unique footprint. My hope is that Living Today will be an inspiration to help you get the very best living from each day of your life!


Living Today

Today is a gift.  Embrace it with joy and anticipation…realize the possibilities.

It beckons you towards your destination in life. Be at peace – you are exactly where you are meant to be at this moment.

God has carefully chosen the people, events, joys and challenges on your path today. The things you will encounter are stepping stones of what is to come.

Make the most of today. Focus on “the present” – you will see and appreciate things you might otherwise miss.

Follow your heart – search to find your purpose in life and you will find meaning and happiness.

Use your talents, do your best, contribute.  Make a difference, because you can.

Be passionate about your journey – sing, dance, laugh, and love as you go.  Give praise and allow time for prayer.

The promise of tomorrow begins with the endeavors of today.  Do not let the fast-forward pace of the world deprive you from savoring “the now”.

Seek things that fill you with love and bring you joy. Have faith, it fosters hope – it makes the difference.

Believe, with God all things are possible. Live well – live today, for it is a gift
