Slow Down

Standard

Busy, busy, busy. Things to do, places to be, clean the house, work, work, work. Day in and day out! I can’t believe summer is upon us! Where did spring go? My, how time flies!
It’s easy to get so caught up in all the craziness of everyday things that we really miss the things that are so important! You were cooking dinner and working in the kitchen while your 5 year old was chatting and you were saying “uh huh, uh huh”, weren’t you? But what was he saying? Were you really listening?
There is a road close to our house that we drive down quite regularly, several times a week. It is a beautiful country road with trees lining one side, and a field on the other. Much like any other country road, it seems.
To appreciate the true beauty, and discover all the little hidden details, you have to walk down that road. For if you walk, you will find this quaint little trickling stream. You’ll he intoxicated with the scent of wildflowers all along the way. You may just spot a squirrel. You’ll hear the birds singing. You’ll definitely make some wonderful memories with your children.
Just remember to slow down. Getting caught up in the rush, hurrying through everything, you just might be missing more than you think. Enjoy the life God gave you! Slow down!
