Sunday Pause (Paws): For What’s Important

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and realize what’s most important.

There has been a lot of tragedy lately. It certainly has been bringing me down a bit. But I know there is also a lot of beauty in the world. A few examples of this beauty I feel are shown in the two pictures below I took of a sunset and a full moon.

Sunday Pause (Paws): For The Wounded

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, pray, and think of others.

Today would you consider taking a pause for the wounded?

Sunday Pause (Paws): Slow Dance

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and enjoy the simple things in life.

This Sunday I would like to share a poem called “Slow Dance” written by a terminally ill young girl. It is absolutely beautiful and well said. A great reminder for us all!

SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight? beautiful-butterfly-editedOr gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won’t last. Continue reading
