Capturing the Light

i spent a few moments with my amazing granddaughter yesterday.
just she and i.
in the yard.
the weather was mild.
the sun was bright.
she told me.
covering her eyes and saying "hot".
the kittens followed her around.
we blew bubbles.
she discovered her daddy's old toy dump truck.
and loved it.
she rolled it to me.
i rolled it back.
over and over.
the world stopped.
my worries left.
simple moment, yet so memorable.
i captured the light.
it dawned on me.
it is important to take time for the little things.
one day they will be the most important things.

Every good and perfect gift is from above, 
coming down from the Father of heavenly lights, 
who does not change like shifting shadows.
James 1:17
