OK, are you ready?
The topic for today is:
Quite often I think I am breathing in, holding on and not really experiencing the exhale.
The breath in revives us, gives us life, picks us up and as soon as we let go of that breath we always seem to be in such a hurry to catch the next, and the next...
Sometimes it's okay to pause and enjoy the breath out, the exhale, the letting go.
Busyness surrounds us, in our work, our family time, even in our play. We move so quickly from one experience to the next, barely taking a moment to appreciate and sink into and enjoy what we are going through.
For me, it's a project, or a work assignment, deadlines, approval, rewriting, tweaking this or that, spell checking, fact checking, then onto family dinners and shopping, groceries, time with friends, movies, books, full weekends, long hours, long days.......
This summer I want to exhale.
I want to breathe, deeply and enjoy whom I am with, truly listen to their stories and take time and space to feel happy wherever this warmer season takes me.
I want to hear what God is saying when I'm usually too busy to listen.
Take the time.
Enjoy and experience the exhale.
