Breathing in Life

Breathing, woman, freedom, life

Breath is a blessing

Our life is but a vapor

Thankful for each breath


If you have ever lost your breath for a moment I am sure you can relate to this poem.

Having recently had an asthma attack that literally took my breath from me for a few seconds was very scary and made me realize how precious each breath I take is.

Life is short, breathe it in and give thanks for every breath!

  1. How true. Until we have our breath taken away even for a moment, we really don’t even think about it. I think it is the same with a lot of things, and people, in our lives. Until there is a threat of losing them, we take them for granted so much that we hardly consider them for what they are and mean.

    1. Yes! So true! It is amazing how blessed we are and how much we take it for granted. I am trying now to remember to be more thankful each day for each breath and all that I am blessed with.

      1. I think we all need to do this. Being thankful is one of the best ways to find joy in life, victory is our battles, and alignment with the Lord and what He has for us.
