Spring has sprung here in Texas; trees are budding and bulbs are blooming. It’s the perfect weather to get outdoors and enjoy the beauty of God’s creation. I would love to walk through a park smelling the roses, listening to the birds, and sensing God’s presence. How renewing that would be! But I am bound to my busyness, my tasks, and my responsibilities. I have a big list of what must be done today, and it includes only the things that God has given me to do involving ministry, family, and home. Sound familiar?
How do we stop and smell the roses when our schedules and responsibilities force us to move at light speed? What "roses" are right in front of us waiting to be smelled, ready to renew our souls?
