God in His loving wisdom has often has often had to remind me to relax, slow down and find His love and joy in each day. Each day I make an entry here in my blog which I label as a page in my book of life, a life that I try to enjoy one page and one day at a time.
Slowing down is just a matter of remembering that there’s no need to rush through life. Schedule less things on your calendar, and more space between things. Learn to eat slower, drive slower, and walk slower. Going slowly helps to reduce stress, and improves the pleasure of doing things, and keeps you in the present moment.
The present moment is filled with so many wondrous things. Just like the little poem above, right now somebody is probably thinking about you. We don't realize how many things a moment can hold, until we slow down and think about it.
Life will always be stressful if you constantly try to rearrange it.
Learn now to be gentle with yourself. You deserve special treatment simply because you are special.
Just like those moments that take our breath away, there are moments of stress and moments of pain in our lives too. Thankfully the moments of joy far outnumber the moments of sorrow in our lives.
Sundays are a perfect time to slow down and think about just what the moments of our day hold for us.
Could it be that the answer to our problems lie in a simple moment? Slow down and enjoy every moment.
I'm going to place a high priority on keeping my peace today.
