Sometimes we are bombarded with advertisements with a great sense of urgency...on TV or newspapers......
Phone now, don't delay....Sale ends tomorrow....Hurry, hurry, hurry....
Sometimes it seems we are overwhelmed with things we have to do.
Appointments, commitments, work to catch up on....
Are there days when you'd like to hold up your hands and say 'Slow down please!'
We are all caught up in this cycle on some days
Slow me down Lord. Steady my hurried pace.
Give me the calmness of the everlasting hills.
Teach me the art of taking little vacations; of stopping to look at a flower, or taking time to chat to a friend, or read a few lines from a good book.
Inspire me to send my roots deep into the soil of life's enduring values, that I may grow towards the star of my greater destiny.
Just reading these few lines makes me feel more peaceful and
I hope you will feel the same.
