As I was enjoying the beautiful sunshine today and the clear, dry weather I took a walk around my yard to feel the warm rays on my face...and look what I found, right under my feet...the simple signs of Spring, the simple signs of God's love and grace that surround us every day. They are always there, just waiting for us to acknowledge their presence...but sometimes we can get so busy, so focused on our many tasks, that we miss what is right before our eyes. Those small and simple gifts that are given to us to enjoy each and every day. How is it that we miss them? Do we have too many other things taking priority to take even a moment for those that are most important, most meaningful and most beautiful? Simplifying your life is a journey you choose to take. To do the things you enjoy, you must find the time and take the time to do them. To spend time with people you value, you must say good-bye to a jam-packed schedule. Are you willing to make changes so that you live your life at a reasonable pace allowing time to truly enjoy that which brings you calm and contentment? Are you willing to forgo the expectations the world places on you and listen to the plan that God has had for you all along? We are all precious women, each with an important role that only we can fill. Make every day count for you and the people around you!
