Take two...

It's not even that I haven't been inspired to's that I have a lot on my plate right now so I haven't had time to sit and look at my computer a ton.

One thing I did get to do that I haven't done in months was hang out with two of my girlfriends on Tuesday morning. I love my friends but it seems we are all in a busy time of life and then, we were talking about how each of us goes through 'funks', but they aren't in sync but instead staggered. We decided we need to 'sync' our 'funks' so that the rest of the year we can just enjoy each other.

I'm not in a funk right now, but I do feel like I'm soaring through life at rocket speed and although everything around me is beautiful and good and exciting to be a part of, I'm not able to enjoy it to the fullest. I do hope I learn all that He intends for me during this season...

God, I need a speeding ticket! Not in the car, por favor, but in life! I'm guilty of trying to do too much at once and thinking I need to be more than You have called me to be in other people's lives. I know I am not 'all that and a bag of chips.' Lord, I am so grateful for the people in my life, my family, my friends, my neighbors, my church, cyber friends, my jobs, my community...but at this rate, I know if I don't slow down I'll miss out on the simple things, the pure and simple beauty that is found in everyday. I don't want to do that.

Lord, can you press slow motion so we can all just stop and smell the roses for a few minutes???


  1. Wow. You and Emily at Chatting With the Sky are stepping on my toes today. I must need to hear this.

  2. Slow motion sounds wonderful!! ;)

  3. I'm looking for a pause or stop button too!!
