A Moment

My old (he’d get a kick out of the strategic placement of that word)
Young Life leader
posted this recently.
It made me think.
Have a look.

Moments from Everynone on Vimeo.


  1. Wow. Makes you realize how the little choices add up to your life.

  2. I don't know why it made me cry, but it did.

    And I wish I could snap my bra in the back like that lady did. That looks so much cooler than the way I do it.


  3. Super cool! I think a moment is something I'm always waiting for but am losing millions just for that one.

  4. a moment ... The Moment ... is what we live for in the passing of days, years, a life ...

  5. Oh, MAN!!! Reminds me of "Run, Lola, Run," a rather eclectic German film that explores how things can change with your split=second choices.

    Very cool, Wendy. Glad your OLD leader's in touch and you're in touch with him!!!

    Love ya, girl!

  6. Moments captured. Some I never connect as being important. But when I saw that, I thought each one could start/be a story. Hmmmm.

  7. So glad comments came back.

    Heather, I thought so. Very moving. Certainly worth posting here.

    Jeanette, That was one word swirling around my brain when I watched it.

    Jessica, Yes. I loved it and I find it hard to say exactly why. That's what I think I loved most about it.

    Amy, I'm so with you on that one. You made me laugh out loud! And I've watched it about five times and each time I get close to crying (especially seeing the grave that says Last).

    T.Anne, Can I ever relate to that right now!

    Anne, Wonder what one moment will feel like in heaven. To be free from all this gunk down here. To be before the King.

    Susan, I did too.

    Patti, Never seen Run, Lol, Run. Sounds intriguing. Connected through Twitter. I actually led for some years with him, for some reason when I think of him, I remember him as my leader. I actually have no idea what his job is. He's always posting cryptic work related technical jargon that makes me think he's building a spaceship. Very likely if you ask me. But he loves his wife and kids and God so that makes him cool in my book.

    And Patti, I love ya right back!

    Grateful for your thoughts. I wanted to share it with you. I'm learning so much lately. Wish I had time to share it all. Some of it is private stuff with God anyway. But it's rewarding and agonizing and beautiful all at once. (Sort of like that video.)

    Remember every single word spoken or written means something to someone.

  8. Karen, You and I were pretty much expressing the same thing at the same time. See my last point. Cool when that happens.

  9. Wow, it was like scenes of my life flashing before me...missing the bus, newborn babies, stepping in dog doodoo, to splashing in puddles.

    Thanks for sharing...

  10. Hi Wendy -

    Interesting slices of life. I just yawned, and realized I had a moment!

    Susan :)

  11. Get out! I just wrote a post (that I won't be able to post for awhile...hint, hint) that is all about moments in life and how moments are meant to pass, but God never passes. Wow. That video was super cool. I especially loved the baby ones. Reminded me of what a crazy experience that was!

  12. So good! I feel that sometimes- lift above my situation and capture a normal moment that more fully represents life than the extraordinary ones~

  13. Touching. Incredible, I loved it.

    Those moments are life.
