Slow Down

Slowing it down today. The good Lord is  never in a  hurry, anyway. 
  He's taking His sweet time. He's more concern with us
than our dreams...

Slow down; God is still in heaven. You are not responsible for doing it all yourself, right now.
Remember a happy, peaceful time in your past. Rest there. Each moment has richness that takes a lifetime to savor.
 Taste your food. God gives it to delight as well as to nourish.
   Count your blessings - one at a time and slow.

It is important from time to time to slow down, to go away by yourself, and simply be. ~Eileen Caddy
