For When You Forget To Take A Breath
Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. Genesis 2:3
In this busy season of raising little people, it’s easy to forget to come up for air.
Yesterday, the earth seemed to spin slower, the clouds barely moved, I took a deep breath.
Life is short.
our days are numbered and finite.
the fun of rolling down a hill. On purpose.
Beauty and gifts abound in this world and living behind a screen or constantly tuned in to other things becomes the hidden ticket to sudden death.
I’ve walked the edge. I’ve slipped a bit. I’m stepping back.
Better one handful with tranquillity
than two handfuls with toil
and chasing after the wind.
Counting on beyond my 1000 Gifts~
