Then my life changed and I have found the honest power of calming the ongoing frenzy in which many of us live our lives. I found that it is not only wise but necessary to stop and examine the beauty in life. God taught me to notice and appreciate more fully the smell of flowers, the texture of petals, and the exquisite power in a quiet moment of natural grace. We spend much of our time on the computer, driving in the car, and planning out our ever crowded lives. Perhaps some of us have forgotten that we are eternal spirits whose potential extends forever before us and that God placed beauty in our pathways for us to notice and enjoy. I used to feel selfish and wrong in enjoying soft quiet moments like this. I always felt that I should be serving someone else or being so called "productive" in some manner or other. When we stop and enjoy the beauty around us, we are indeed being productive. We are gaining wisdom, calming and soothing our spirits and cultivating a stronger relationship with those things that really matter most.
I hope that you know that you can stop here to find one of those quiet moments of thought.
