I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “rush.” We’d love to have you join us.
People quickly moving to and fro. It seems like the world is constantly in motion. Why are we in such a rush?
This afternoon, I was at the grocery store picking up a few items. I grabbed what I needed and got in line at one of the tills. The lady in front of me told me that it might be awhile as she was having an issue with one of her sale items. I simply laid down my stuff and waited patiently. I wasn’t in a rush so I simply waited until it was my turn. It was only a few minutes and then she was on her way and it was my turn. I didn’t lose anything by waiting.
The thing that got me was how she kept apologizing for holding us up. The world is always in such a hurry. We need to savor life and not get caught up in life’s craziness. Too often I think we miss parts of life and important moments because we are in such a rush.
Im vowing to slow down. To spend time with those I love. To play with sweet Luna more. To stop and just be. Let’s focus more on God’s words “Be still and know that I am God!”
