Have you ever been in a time of waiting? You know what I mean, a time of uncertainty… of just not knowing what is going to happen. Recently someone I love very much has been in this time zone…”Waiting”.

In every situation it all boils down to mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. In other words… we must learn to enjoy the journey, no matter what road we happen to be on.

I remember my little children used to love to pick flowers. We all know that we don’t see “Flocks” in the flower shops, but they happen to be my favorite! Why? Because you find them where no other flowers are. Covering a barren field, they catch the eye… such beauty to me!
Sometimes our field is barren. We must choose to plant the WORD OF GOD into that field. The only truth and certainty we have is that God is in control and we are not. Somehow that is just so comforting to me. Even though it’s nice to plan and to have your goals realized, still… detours happen for a reason. I’m thankful for the entire journey. It seems the slower I walk, the more I see and hear.

As my Mother got up to 80 years old, she constantly told me to SLOW DOWN. I know now what she meant. Working with Elderly people, I walk very slow with them. I like it! It calms your heart and your mind can enjoy the journey. I just love the song “Wonderful Peace”….
Far away in the depth of my spirit tonight … Rolls a melody sweeter than psalm; In celestrial like strains it unceasingly falls Oer my soul like an infinite calm… Peace! Peace! wonderful peace, Coming down from the Father above; Sweep over my spirit forever, I pray, In fathomless billows of love.
