“Glorious moments. Soul-expanding instants. Thin slices of eternity. We’ve all had them. Moments in time which reach beyond it. Moments so abnormally rich, so deeply personal, so emotionally potent, they almost seem to be out-of-body experiences. We wish they would never end. Yet even when they have passed us by (as they must), these sorts of moments demand reflection. Re-living. Re-tasting. Again & again.”
~ “Four Pillars of a Man’s Heart” by Stu Weber

“An instant in time that had no time. A picture that froze in mid-frame, demanding to be savored. A minute that refused to die, after sixty seconds… a moment that reminds you of the treasures surrounding you. Your home. Your peace of mind. Your health… a moment that can bring a mist to the manliest of eyes and perspective to the darkest life.”
~ “God Came Near” by Max Lucado

“A moment’s insight is sometimes worth a life’s experience”
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take; but by the moments that take our breath away!”

“…that’s when she walked up to him…
He said this is my wife
I gave my best smile, but I was dying inside
He said we’ve gotta go now, it’s getting late
It was so good to see you, then they walked away”

~ lyrics from “And Still” by Reba McEntire
