Going to work. Doing the laundry. Taking the kids to hockey practice. Grocery shopping. Always running around, always busy, right? Stop. Give yourself the gift of time.
Time to slow down, to take at least 20 minutes of quiet time to pray, to commune with the spark of the Creator within. Time to burn a candle in a quiet room, to watch the clouds, to walk the dog. Time, even, to acknowledge that there are situations we have no control over and to realize that other ones are presented to us to relay a message.
We will reap the benefits of these moments of introspection and peace, and in due course, these moments will bring us a good return on our investment of time and energy.
