I believe each day has at least one perfect moment.

Most of them happen fast: the flare of the last second of sunlight on the horizon, an unexpected hug, the shock on someone’s face from a surprise.

But perfect moments can also be hidden from our perspective. No, not necessarily our visual perspective; I mean the perspective of our attitude.

-A washer and dryer that cleans our clothes with the push of a few buttons (or twisting of a few knobs if you’re old-school).

-The fact that your car has four tires on it from the same manufacturer; all inflated.

-A faucet that dispenses drinkable water at any temperature you desire.

Those are just three perfect moments worth taking a picture of today that 98% of the rest of the world’s citizens will not have the luxury of capturing (even if they did have a digital camera).

Mine? Was seeing my 3 kids make an impromptu bed and watch a movie.

It lasted for 60 seconds. ch:

so true Christopher and those “perfect” moments are gone so fast sometimes!! My day started with my perfect moment…this amazing sunrise on my way to the gym @545am this morning 😉 Just drove along with the radio off and soaking up the awesomeness of our God!!

After reading this yesterday I looked for the perfect moment to capture. I realized that some moments that are perfect can’t be searched for they happen without our realization.
My mom & I enjoy watching 2 tv shows together & just having that bond for an hr last night was perfect. I’m blessed to have a great relationship with her.
I could have captured the moon last night, but was to in awe of the coloring to remember to take a pic. Seeing His gorgeous artwork in the sky is always a perfect moment of any day.

    Good stuff! Not being able to take pics so reminds me of the John Mayer song, “3×5.”
