We are a people enticed by the world, energized by motion and engaged by pleasure
When God created the light in the darkness…the love in the world…
Was His intent that we simply live
Or was His intent that we live simply?
Living simply is not to be equated with a dirt floor and no furniture
Living simply is living without excess of materialism, negative thoughts, and too many tasks
Our lives are multi tasked, not single actions,
Our lives are a blur of things we have checked off a list and a calendar of things yet to check off
How then do we catch our breath and discover the rhythm of our lives
How then will we sit still when the motion is what propels us?
Stop, simply put, Stop
Not forever, just for a time, just for a few minutes each day
Stop and breathe… inhale goodness and exhale pollution
In that moment close your eyes to your schedules and open your mind to God
In that silence simply be at peace, listen for the breathing and embrace the goodness that fills your lungs
