It seems that in my life I have always been in a hurry to get to the next thing, what ever that thing is. The next phase of life, the next vacation, the next Friday, or even the next season. So many of us are more in a hurry than we realize. I look back and say to myself now, why was I a hurried momma? I was so excited when my kids got older instead of diapered babies yet now I would do anything to hold them once again as babies one more time! This summer since about a month ago I have heard so many ladies say I just can not wait for fall and all it brings. God gripped my heart. What about summer for now and all it brings? Time already passes by so fast so why do we tend to hurry it up? So yes I do enjoy Fall and all it brings but for today I am slowing down to rejoice in this day and this season. God has made each day, each season, and each phase of life special and beautiful in their own rights. I no longer want to miss a thing I do not want to rush life but cherish the moments given today and not look to tomorrow, just drink in as much today as I can.
