Slow Sunday Afternoon
Lately I have been thinking about bloggers who write great content on their blogs and write books. Sometimes it seems as though I don't know what else to write while others around me continue to write and write and write.
The truth is, I write in two ways - I publish posts here in this space and then I have my journal where I process and write as well.
This morning I'm processing this: this will never be the blog you come to for something new and fresh every day content. This will be the blog that is consistent in promoting slow and beauty and like the tag line says above, "cultivating the simple pleasures of faith, family and home."
There are no blogging police that say I have to do anything specific or be anything certain. I am me and this is me - and I love that other bloggers have their own personality and message as well. I love that about blogging - I started this blog in 2005, which in blogging years is ancient history.
This space has grown to be such an extension of myself and really it feels like a space of friendship and a place where I am me.
In the midst of the busy of life - I want this space to be a pause. A place where I talk about taking an hour long walk on a Sunday afternoon and sitting still that long next to the pond as well! I want it to be the place where small, ordinary, everyday beauty is discovered and enjoyed.
And, a place where you feel like you've taken a deep breath - I guess I want this place to be like a slow Sunday afternoon - a dose of rest, refreshment in slowing down and a chance for you to catch your breath and prepare your heart for the next thing God brings.
Slow down enough today to enjoy one little thing that comes your way!
