Slowing Down and Savouring — 3 Comments

  1. Sitting here, waiting for a tow truck because my car won’t start, I’m trying to see this as an opportunity to slow down, to quiet my spirit. Making an effort to not think about what I should be/could be doing instead. Lord have mercy.

  2. I really enjoyed reading this excerpt on Silence. I have been practising this for much of my adult life. Sometimes for hours at a time and sometimes just a few minutes. I believe also that God meets me in Silence (stillness) I am excited to be able to visit this website.

  3. I find that when I really encourage myself, I slow down the best when I am taking public transportation. Whether it’s because of the poorly scheduled routes or just lateness of buses I get to spend time outdoors. Plus when you have little to no control of how and when you are going to get places, you pay more attention to your surroundings. Just last night I am thinking about all the things I want to cross off my lists and I push these to the side to slow down. I realized I was sitting outside, overhead a cloudless sky and was wrapped up by the colours being painted around me by the sunset. At the sun a bright orange surrounded by yellows, to the bright blue of the sky above to the pinks and deeper purples opposite the sun. Geese were landing in the field next to me, only silhouettes, the moon a sliver shines in the sky, and bright jet streams highlight the pallet. Be still and know I am God indeed. I felt at peace, at rest and I breathed deep. And then my phone buzzed in my pocket… I am sure we’ll deal with that later. 🙂
