I like what Henri Nouwen said about real life:

The real enemies of life are the "oughts" and "ifs." They pull us backward into the unalterable past and forward into the unpredictable future. But real life takes place in the here and now. God is always in the moment be that moment hard or easy joyful or painful.

I do too! (Like this, that is.)

Living in the "right now" is perhaps my most difficult undertaking. The past often seems much "cozier."

Good to remember...He is the great I AM, not the great I WAS, or I'm GOING TO BE. "AM" implies here in the moment as each new moment evolves! (don't ya just love Nouwen?)
