Slowing Down

It has been a time of sickness in our house.

The boys' energetic play has been downgraded to a more subdued tone.

While wiping runny noses, soothing sore throats, and trying to ease coughing fits hasn't been fun, it has been nice to slow our pace.

...To take a "time out" and simply rest.

...To stop and read a few more books and cuddle on the couch.

... To push aside the chaos and find joy in the calm.

Have you been able, even for just a few minutes, to find time this week to slow down?

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,
for my hope is from him.
He only is my rock and my salvation,
my fortress; I shall not be shaken.
On God rests my salvation and my glory;
my mighty rock, my refuge is God.
Psalm 62:5-7 ESV
