I often wonder why so many in the world are angry, sad, fearful, and without hope. For some, they live in horrendous situations and I can understand their handicap. But others, they are without serious obstacles yet possess such pain.
I have to believe that we have lost touch with the simple pleasures in life and are so focused on certain events, goals, and accomplishments that we miss altogether the real meaning in life.
Life really can be simple and pure...... But we must slow down to see it and experience it. I think it can honestly be said that we could cut out 1/2 of what we do each down and still feel busy.
God is constantly placing beauty in our path through his creations, people, and situations, yet we are so head strong and focused, if it wasn't already planned in our minds, we won't even see it.
There is much wisdom in that old adage "Take time to stop and smell the roses."
Life is Good!
“It is important to make them understand that being Christian is not a type of outfit that one wears in private or on special occasions, but something living and totalizing, capable of taking all that is good in modernity.” - Pope Benedict
