SLOW DOWN!

Our Five Minute Friday prompt this week is—SLOW.  We simply write for 5 minutes on a prompt and see what is created!  I've enjoyed doing these quick writings.  If you would like to give it a try, check out the Facebook page or this blog:  Kate Motaung’s site

Slow is not me.  I am quick.  I multi-task.  I make lists.  I complete my lists, before the due date.  I walk fast.  I pass people in the hallway.  My husband says I drive fast, but really, I just go the speed limit.  Most of the time.
So perhaps I need to SLOW DOWN.  
The upcoming season of Lent is a perfect time for me to SLOW my thinking, my pace, my soul.  

I will take time to slow down and walk WITH someone I approach in the hallway.  Not pass them up to quickly get to my all-so-important (not) destination.
I will take time to stop by church and pray awhile before I head home after school or after being in town.
I will slow down when I drive to take better notice of the beauty around me.
I've noticed that when I take the TIME to BE, that things DO get done in spite of it!  So I will probably still make those lists, but instead of letting the list control me, I will be the one in control of that list.  
I'll take the TIME to SLOW myself.  I will be aware of the path that perhaps God is calling me to....instead of zoom by it, not even noticing the option.
