Smelling the roses

Don't forget to find the time to stop
and smell the roses. 

Sometimes we race around so much we forget to look at the beauty and calm that is around us. We miss the details. They simply become a blur.

Be still and know that I am God

Psalms 46:10


  1. So true. Thanks for the reminder, Joluise. Blessings to you. ♥

  2. Genesis 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

    If God took the time to see what He created and see that it was very good, we should to! Thanks for a good reminder.

    1. It's funny you quotes that verse as I'm reading it at the moment. We should stop and look at what He created as it was so good.

  3. So true and it should be so simple. But alas, we are inclined to rush and fret and so easily forget to be still. Thanks Jo. My head is swirling at present. I may post about it soon.

  4. Amen! Such a good reminder for us all to remember.

    Blessings to you!

  5. I'm loving your short & sweet reminders of how to enjoy life and be grateful :-)
    Thanks for posting xxx

  6. I've been pondering that verse of the Bible myself a bit lately. So hard to "be still" in today's hectic busy world sometimes, isn't it? We need to be intentional and purposeful in actually DOING that.
    Great reminder - thank you. x
