Just Breathe…

Just Breathe…

“Dear God, make me a bird, so I can fly, fly far away. Dear God, make me a bird, so I can…”

Peas and Carrots - Looks like she's still in need a a moment alone by the look on her face though.

Everyone knows this prayer by “Jenny” or a.k.a. “Jen-Neigh” off of Forrest Gump.

Ever felt like flying the coop? (For those of you who are not suthiners, a.k.a. southerners, this is an analogy used when a chicken, etc., get out of the hen house. Getting out of the way for a while.)

I would love to just get away by myself sometimes and forget about everything around me. Though I would probably wind up sleeping. And I would desperately miss my husband and my kids, so I might as well take them with me, right? That would so defeat the purpose.

 

Breathe Forrest Breathe!!!

We have a way of letting “life” over take us. Things consume our every minute of the day and night. It’s like we never really get that breath of fresh air that we hear so much about. So I challenge you to take time from your busy schedule and enjoy the little things in life. Like the formations of the clouds above. The miraculous way that each one of them are different. The awesomeness of our Heavenly Fathers’ creativity. In every flower petal, every leaf, every sound in the air. Let His peace wash over the heaviness of the day, and just breathe.
