Today

Today

Instead of...being on my computer, I'll feel warmth of the sun on my shoulder a little more.

Instead of...thinking maybe I should be doing this or that, I'll breathe a little more and know I'm right where I need to be.

Instead of letting the day fly by without feeling gratitude, I'll remember that all I am and all I have is grace..even now.

I want to s l o o o o w.

There's no need to hurry.

All the hurrying makes me hurt.

Sometimes, I feel like I'm able to just sit and retreat from life, but other times, it feels so unnatural not to be constantly moving, constantly going. But the hurry is often to no end, it's a relentless rush.

On my way to and fro, the stop sign, the red light- they are small comforts- strong and fierce; I want to ignore them, but rolling by without a full stop just pushes the limit once again.

What do you want to do differently..even today?

Here are some Sunday songs that came on my playlist today for your listening enjoyment..:)

-Sara Groves - "Glory Come Down" (the only version of this song I could find in video form is performed by a dance group- but, nevertheless..)

-Hillsong- "Desert Song"

-Laura Story - "Make Something Beautiful"

-Mat Kearney "Closer to Love"
