Slow down!

I was too busy, hurrying, one day last week, trying to accomplish lots of things, marking items off my to-do list, when I remembered a lovely poem. I found it, and it inspired me to slow down a bit.

I will not hurry through this day!
Lord, I will listen by the way
To humming bees and singing birds,
To speaking trees and friendly words;
And for the moments in between
Seek glimpses of thy great Unseen.
–Ralph Spaulding Cushman

I found the poem—“The Great Unseen”—in a splendid children’s book, one that I hadn’t opened for years. I’ll share more of the poems from This Amazing Word, which was compiled by Lois Rock, in future blog posts.
