Such a necessary thing
Which God wove into
The very fabric of creation

The ability to stop
To pause
To cease from doing
And just to be

All too often
We overlook its importance
The utter necessity
Of rest

Life is currently lived
At such breakneck speed
With no time built in
To slow down and stop

And yet
It is only as we stop
As we take time out
That we truly begin to see

How do we hear
The still small whisper
When we continue on
At our frantic pace

Take time out
Open your heart

You will be amazed
At what is revealed
When you slow down
And tune in
