There are no rules of architecture for a castle in the clouds.
-G.K. Chesterton

Have you ever noticed that sometimes life is going so fast, and has so many demands, that you forget to slow down and savor what is beneath the tip of your nose or positioned against the sky just beyond your lifted chin? New details can emerge on an exquisite building that has been in your path - in one way or another - for decades. Slow down and just stand there for a moment - so much is simply waiting there for your kind company and undivided attention. You will be glad you did...

Taking the time to enjoy life seems so simple so why am I always rushing? Time to reflect is definitely the right prescription. Thank you Karen :-)

What good advice. Sometimes it is so hard when everything is speedy by us.

Yes, to take time and truly reflect on the beauty surrounding us is so important, but so difficult in this fast paced world. I guess all of us have to find those ways to take time and see the blessings around us.
I hope for you time to see what God has sent your way today.

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
