The Measure of Moments


Moments make all the difference in life
Not the miles or flying leaps…

A moment to touch you in a prayer, my love
A moment to ache, to need, to weep

It’s in moments that we become…
In moments of living and learning…and losing

Moments are not meaningless ticks of the clock
They become legacies; the fruit of our choosing

I do not ask for a lifetime with you
But I strongly desire a moment or two…

There is one moment out-standing above all others, for me
In the moment when I beheld my greatest need
...and I cried, 'Oh my Lord, I believe'...
That moment secured my hope...and eternity
