Musings From A Musical Mind

Little Moments

I can’t remember where I heard it – but I know it’s true.  Life is made up of many “little moments all strung together”.  We wait for the BIG moments to find us – or for us to find them – and we take a lifetime searching for and waiting for something to happen to us.  Something bigger than ourselves that will propel us into another level of existence.  Something that will preclude our present circumstances.  And all along – while we are waiting – we live our little moments – over and over again – unrecognized and insignificant. 

I have had many of these moments, though at the time – they did not seem like much – nothing to write home about, and nothing worthy of any attention – or worth mentioning.  However as I think about where I am today and the significant changes along my journey – they are because of many little moments along the way.

These frozen moments in time are unique and personal – and no one can live them for me.  No one can experience the joy and pain of being me.  No one sees things in exactly the same way – no one loves and expresses like I do.  God made me just the way I am.  And my “little moments” are special and just for me.

I had one of these last weekend at the close of “Bugsy Malone”.  I have been a musical theater director for the last 7 or 8 years at a local Christian School and this was my final production.  I did not know – but several Alumni were invited to come for the final production and all were given a single rose.  At the end when the teachers and those in charge came up to the stage for the final applause – the students started singing one of the songs from the musical, “You give a little love and it all comes back to you – you know you’re gonna be remembered by the things that you say and do…”  And they stood in the audience and one by one came up on the stage and presented the rose and gave a hug while still singing.  It was what I call a “little moment” in time.  Frozen in my memory forever.

I’ve had many such moments like this.  Here are just a few:

When I accepted the Lord at age 4

When my family moved to Seattle from Canada when I was 8

My first day of Junior High

My first day of High School

When I knew I was in love for the first time

When I met Greg

My wedding day

When both babies were born

When my friend lost her husband to cancer

When I had to say goodbye to a friend

When a struggle became a strength

Each one of my student recitals

Spending time with friends

Speaking encouragement into someones life

Living out a difficult family issue

These are some of my “little moments”.

What are some of yours?  How have they defined you?

God Bless

  1. Beautiful picture, Cindy! One of those moments that will live forever in your mind. I’ve lost track of most of mine, but I know they all went into making me. . . well, me!

  2. Duh.

    When you met me. When Allison and I came flooding into your life. Geez.

    But seriously. You and Greg have a beautiful life. It’s so wonderful to see your life unfolding here. And you know what? I’m excited at the opportunity at spending eternity with you both getting to know you better and hearing all kinds of wonderful stories.

    • Yes Ray. It’s true – only you got it backward. YOUR moment is when you met ME!!! All seriousness aside – I’m excited for what the future has for all of us and to be in your lives is an honor!

  3. Graduation from college, my wedding, having both my children and a miscarriage, when each of my children almost died, sending my dd off to college, sending my dd half way around the world to live for a semester in Russia…
