beauty & joy {lately} photographs

I reminded myself: It is in the hurried days when it is most important for me to take the time to pause and look with expectation.

I don't like to be rushed. It is no longer alluring to me. But, at times, it is a reality.

Even so, I combat it.

Today I set my timer to chime at odd times throughout the busy day, reminding me to be still. When the timer alerted me, I calmed my hands, took a deep breath, and stood motionless.

I prayed. I gazed outside. I watched the sunlight splash across the room. I closed my eyes and gave thanks.

I stilled myself with expectation. And I was rewarded.
