to soften the edge of busyness
to stop and smell the roses 
twice in one day
to sweep the farthest corners 
and do all the laundry
to explore
and sing
to feel the warmth of the sunshine
and pray
to try something new
but slow is only good
when it means everyday worship prospers
and slow
is for choosing, carefully, how to fill the moments
slow shouldn't be idle
because consecrated moments aren't meant to be wasted
and so
when you slow
invite someone in
make something and give it away
slow is meant to be shared.

Thanks for the comments!
I wrote this last night - ironically, life is anything but slow right now. The next two weeks are going to be so crazy busy!! =)
I am sad that you won't be able to make it to the wedding Melany!
(though I totally understand)

Sometimes I am melodramatic... Bear with me. My favorite thing is finding hope in hard places. If you enjoyed something (or not) I would love to hear from you! You can make me very happy by leaving a comment :)
