Take a moment
Slow down and take a moment today. I mean really slow down and really take a moment. We live in such a "I want it now" society. We are rushing here and there, not even noticing anything around us at times. With 3 kids-there are days I really could use one of those clones. "You go to the ballgame with Eli, AmyClone # 1, while I go to the band concert, OH and AmyClone#2-at the ballgame-you chase Logan around"
Yeah, its a busy life. So, we have to make ourselves S..l..o..w....d..o..w..n. Take a few breaths and enjoy the world. All the birds were singing this morning at my house, and as I sat down for a minute, I was reminded how wonderful life is. So often I miss the smell of fresh cut grass or the lovely symphony the birds are serenading. The green of the trees and grass, the feel of a cool breeze. Take a moment-not to think, but to experience the beauty around us. Send a thank you to the Lord for blessing us with this moment. Just for a moment-be a human BEING-not a human doing.
