I think my mind has a block built of the here and now. In the present, with all its small, nagging, trivial annoyances. With personal introspection.
Life will not pull the skateboard from beneath me and I will not fall on the rail. But I do think it is saying, every so quietly, shhhhhhhh...
To find a little quiet. To quiet the mind from running in its circles. To take a moment here and there and get lost in the simple pleasures of the world around me. To close out those things that I cannot change. And then, in a new moment, or maybe a new day ...
I will speed forward with a renewed strength. Light and energetic... but today, I am going to be quiet, find peaceful moments and smile.
Update: As I published this post and headed over to an online devotion,
this is the verse for today:
And I say, ‘Oh that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be at rest; yes, I would wander far away; I would lodge in the wilderness; I would hurry to find a shelter from the raging wind and tempest." Psalm 55:6-8 (ESV)
I am a dove today :)
