Do you know how to slow down?

I mean slow down and enjoy the things around you.

         Things like:

The laughter of a child.

The sounds of a birds song outside your window.

The rushling of a tree in the wind.

Or how about the trickle of water in a gently stream?

I believe I am like most others and I have to remind myself to slow down or stop! To appreciate the joys that are around me.

So I have began to set aside time each day to condition myself to "take time to smell the roses".

First thing in the morning I take my cup of coffee and stroll through my garden barefoot and see what all is going on in the garden. I love the feel of the wet grass on my feet.

I spend some quiet time each morning reading my bible and planning my day.

I love sitting on the porch at night, looking up at the stars and listening to all the night sounds.

These are all things that remind me that he says, "Be still and know that I am god."

What are the ways that you have learned to .....be still?

                                         This is one of the beauties from my gardens!!


  1. Lovely daylily.
    I totally agree with you...so good for the soul.

  2. Yes, we all need to slow down. I like to sit out on the porch swing when the breeze is blowing, go on walks and read. Your flower sure is a beauty!


I try my best to read every comment. And I love hearing from you all.
