This post is an updated version of a post I wrote nearly four years ago. The poem was first published on my former blog May 3, 2015. It reminds us to slow down and enjoy life. We know that time is always ticking away.
Sometimes we work so hard that we forget to play. We get busy rushing and life just goes on by.
The poem was dedicated to my good friend, Marvia Davidson. She inspires and helps us to see the importance of not so much striving, but learning to be. Marvia encourages us to live authentically, fully trusting in God, who is always with us. Thank you, Marvia!
A Time for Everything
Yes, there is a time for everything, even death. There is a time for sorrow as we grieve the loss of our son. We grieve, but in the midst of our grief, we need to be still, to recognize that God is with us in our pain. He knows the depth of our sorrow and understands.
Even in the midst of sorrow, we search for joy in our everyday lives. We treasure the wonderful memories we have, knowing we will see our son again. Now we are separated, but he is well and in no more pain. He would want us to slow down and enjoy each moment of life, to find the wonder in the simple things.
How are you spending your time each day? Do you feel rushed and overwhelmed?
Wouldn’t it be nice to slow down, to be fully present in the moment, to see God’s hand at work in our everyday lives?
During this Christmas season, let’s take time to slow down, to be thankful, to show kindness and love and encourage others to be still and wonder.
