Food for Thought

Hurry is an unpleasant thing in itself, but also very unpleasant for whoever is around it. Some people came into my room and rushed in and rushed out and even when they were there they were not there--they were in the moment ahead or the moment behind. Some people who came in just for a moment were all there, completely in that moment.

Live from day to day, just from day to day. If you do so, you worry less and live more richly. If you let yourself be absorbed completely, if you surrender completely to the moments as they pass, you live more richly those moments.

I do not think it is lack of time that keeps me from doing things, it is that I do not want enough to do them.

Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Bring Me a Unicorn

May you be totally absorbed and live in the moment of this God-given day. Blessings.

How True! I pray for God to let me just think about today and do for others today.Don't wait, just do it. Sometimes it's overwhelming the pressures we put on ourselves. Lift them up to the Lord and walk with Him one step at a time.
