An encouraging journey. . . .
lessons on perspective.


Words of wisdom. . . .

Take nothing for granted:  watch water flow, the corn grow,
the leaves blow, your neighbors mow.

Set your own pace.  When someone is pushing you,
it is okay to tell them they're pushing.

Remember a happy, peaceful time in your past.  Rest there.
Each moment has a richness that takes a lifetime to savor.

Taste your food.  God gave it to delight as well as to nourish.

Notice the sun and the moon as they rise and set.
They are remarkable for their steady pattern of movement, not their speed.

Talk and play with children.  It will bring out the unhurried
little person inside you.

When you walk with someone, don't think about what
you'll say next.  Thoughts will spring up naturally if you let them.

Quit planning how you are going to use what you know,
learn or possess.  God's gifts just are; be grateful and their purpose will be clear.

Allow yourself time to be lazy and unproductive.
Rest isn't a luxury, it's a necessity.

Listen to the wind blow.  It carries a message of yesterday
and tomorrow, and now.  Now counts.

Create a place in your home, at your work, in your heart,
where you can go for quiet and recollection.  You deserve it.

Anyone who proposes to do good must not expect people
to roll stones out of his or her way, but must accept
his or her lot calmly, even if they roll a few more upon it.
