The Lord is always with me even in my pauses, His blessings too numerous to count. In my soul searching I have found peace, this too is a gift from God. My greatest luxury is time, this too is a gift and blessing God bestowed. I do not rush to fill it haphazardly but to savor its glory and beauty. The smallest event, such as a rose in bud is a celebration of life and I am in awe of God's creativity.
