Did you see your sacred moment?

Do you know what my recent favorite moment was?

I stood outside in the driveway, m
y fingers laced around coffee with salted mocha creamer. The steady bounce of the basketballs leaving my sons hands and thumping against the backboard floated in the air. 

Laughter trickled across my ears. The wind gently swayed the trees and set the last of the season's flowers in motion. 

The normality of the moment was surprisingly soothing – that kind of moment when time freezes in the briefest of seconds and blessing after blessing in your life illuminates as if it's your first time seeing them. (Again.)

Then it was over.

It reminded me of the verse: "Be still and know that I am God."  (Psalm 46:10, NIV)

Because before it passed and one brother started bickering with another, and the mug became empty and we needed to pile into the car and go, in that moment when I was still - I felt Him.

What about you? 

Did you experience a sacred moment smack in the middle of the chaos lately?
