    Wow! I’m going to print this one out so I can read it every day! Thank you, Jeff and Landon, for reminding me to enjoy each day and not just check the next thing off the list.

    So true and so good!! I need to hear this all the time. I always think of what I have to do next. As you know I just came out of the hospital and I tire myself out everyday just trying to “do”. I need to relax and let God! I’ll know what needs to be done because He will tell me. Thanks again for your thoughts. Big hugs to you and the familia!!! God bless

    At the risk of using the ministry names entirely superficially, what do you get if you cross Sam Storms and John Piper? Enjoying God AND Desiring God! The underlying thought being that there is an immensity of present blessing to be enjoyed here & now – but an infinity of future blessing that “eye hath not seen, not ear heard …(etc)”.

    So slow down and look around you – and look forward not to schedules & tasks & deadlines but being “in His presence with exceeding joy”.

    And then, if it takes time to stop & pause & think awhile, well all the pressures will be seen in their right perspective, and “the fall colours wont be a blur anymore”.

    Ps be careful on that kitchen floor – don’t want any more injuries in the household!

    As with many other traits we share, you come by “what else is on?” naturally. I’m glad you’re learning to smell a rose or two along the way earlier than I did, Jeff. I got on the two-wheeler yesterday and smelled a few riding in the northern part of our State. I wish your schedule would let you go too.

    Not too many years ago, I would have been trying to set a land speed record on those curvy mountain roads. As Amy has done for you, Claudia has done for me – she challenged me to what seemed to be a waste of time. Ironically, I saw slowing down as a waste of time! The roses smell sweeter today than they used to and the fall colors are no longer a blur.
