The newest Mesa Moment in our lives came in the form of five inches of snow on Friday. This is a very rare treat for this Louisiana gal. This moment marks the third time in my life that it snowed in the town I where I live. Once occurred when I was in second grade in Louisiana, and the second time was last March in Georgia.
The snow came after several extremely busy weeks, and it served as a catalyst to make us stop, relax, and soak in the moment. On Monday, I felt rested and ready for the week mainly because I took the time this past weekend to rest and to play. We soaked up every second we could of this beautiful “Mesa Moment”. Chris kept telling me I was like a “kid at Christmas”.
Snow just starting to fall
The blanket of snow on Saturday morning
Our trees in the back covered in snow
We lit the fire-pit and roasted marshmallows and made s’mores with our neighbors!
Oh Yes! We made a snow-man complete with a “Who Dat!” flag in one hand and LSU flag in the other!
A rare photo opportunity: We are both in the picture!!
I learned a huge lesson from my dad in watching him take “Mesa Moments” all his life. I learned to slow down, to pause, and to enjoy the moment that God has put in front of me! These moments always bring forth something deeper within me.
Is there a “Mesa Moment” in your life you need to take advantage of?
Are you feeling the urge to slow down, pause, and play? Perhaps, this is your spirit saying you need a break…give yourself permission to take one and to rejuvenate!
