31 Days of Seeing God in the Mess of Real Life, Blog

Day 20 – still pondering milestones…


Still thinking about milestones – here’s a interesting quote to ponder today…


“Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments

in life are…

not the advertised ones,

not the birthdays,

the graduations,

the weddings,

not the great goals achieved.

The real milestones are less prepossessing.

They come to the door of memory unannounced,

stray dogs that amble in,

sniff around a bit and simply never leave.

Our lives are measured by these.”
― Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906) suffragist, abolitionist, author and speaker.

Dear God,

Please help me to measure my life with the same measurements that you use.

Please show me what you consider are my real milestones in life.

in the name of Jesus Amen, so be it!

I would love to hear how you discover God in your messy real everyday life too – please leave a comment
