Stop and Smell the Flowers

Posted on

Spring is here! You can tell by the trees, flowers, and the people outside. Or maybe your allergies inform you. You just can’t miss spring and the evidence of it.  Sadly some still miss it. They don’t pause their lives long enough to really smell the flowers and look at the beauty they hold. We do that in our lives too. We see our husband or children but, sometimes we don’t really SEE them or listen to them. Have you sat down and looked into their eyes and listened to them without interrupting? One of my favorite Bible verses is Psalm 46:10, 

   “Be still, and know that I am God.”  

 When we stop to smell the flowers, who knows maybe a butterfly will fly by and say, “Thanks for noticing God’s creation.”
