Slow down, and breath . . .

Like most modern gals, I’ve got stuff to accomplish and a to-do list that goes on and on. So, every day I get up and get to work.

That’s good, right?

Red tree

Maybe not.

One of my biggest flaws is that I fly through the hours, the days, the weeks, and the months intent of getting stuff done.

The past two weeks I’ve been watching the changes in my maple tree. It’s something I look forward to every year. Each morning I check out the rich color that seems to change hour by hour. When my tree is at its most blazing beauty, my kitchen glows orange.

Because of my yearly tree ritual, I’ve slowed down this week—just a bit—and sat, sipping morning coffee, absorbing the magic of autumn’s changing wardrobe.

And Psalm 90:12 popped into my mind: Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.

I’m going to try to slow down a bit, to be mindful of time flashing by. That’s a good idea, especially at this time of year because we know you’ll blink, and it will be 2015.

Be blessed, friends! Slow down. Enjoy.
