Being Present

I made this post a couple of years ago, but I am reposting it with some additional thoughts and resources. I saw this photo first on Facebook. It really struck me. Just look at how the woman in the middle is savoring the moment. She is present. Being present means being fully aware of what is going on around you.

I think we miss so much. On my Greenway hikes, I’ve been surprised at the number of people distracted by their phones with so much beauty around them. I would have missed this if I hadn’t been present.

What Does It Mean to Be Present?

Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10

You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short
The music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift thrown away.

And one more reminder….
