I'm So Busy

Oh how often I have said these words. How often I think these words.

I wonder, am I so busy doing life that I just may be missing out on life? Am I so busy that I fail to look for and see God in the everyday of life?

I have been challenged with this question in recent days and months.

In my busyness, I am tempted to search for the extraordinary. I catch myself longing for the incredible. I fight the urge to notice the spectacular. In doing so, I risk missing the most extraordinary, incredible and spectacular of all... the sacred in the ordinary.

You may
recognize that last paragraph from what I shared Saturday. I am intentionally slowing life in search of normal, everyday moments. Those moments, that if I will just linger in a bit longer, somehow become a sacred moment in the midst of so much ordinary. Those moments, that if I will stop long enough, God will reveal some piece of Himself and His character.

As a challenge and encouragement to my own heart, I will be searching for one ordinary moment each week that causes me to slow, to ponder, to cherish, to wonder, to embrace...

Each Saturday I will share that moment with you in either words, picture or both. I am on a quest to slow life long enough to treasure the sacred in the ordinary.

Care to join me? Finish your week with a moment that you intentionally slowed long enough to be a part of, to consciously set apart from all the other moments of life that flew by.

Look out week! I'm slowing it down!! I'm in pursuit of ordinary moments to embrace and cherish.


  1. Thanks for leaving a comment on Heaven In The Home! I really enjoyed this post. I so often feel overwhelmingly busy and the urge to cancel everything is so strong!

  2. Ah yes, it does seem the Lord has been speaking to us in similar ways. Beautiful.

  3. I've been finding I do have to make a point and intentionally slow down too. Otherwise everything all blends and rushes by me.

  4. S l o w D o w n...I love this idea!

  5. Yes, yes .... to slow down. And I have heard Him whispering - turn off the noise. I need more moments of quiet so I really can capture and see the sacred in the every day.


Thank you for taking a moment to stop and chat. I enjoy the presence of you!
