Slow Down Champion!

Time is running very fast. People are in a constant rush. We live without realizing the moment we are in now. While we will be able to grasp what is actually happening around us with a slightly calmer life, we are perhaps lost on bends roads.

However, how good it would be for our soul to move forward with the awareness that the moment will not happen again and that the roads will never be passed, and to notice the blooming of the birds while listening to the birds’ voice on the road.

Like Wilferd Arlan Peterson’s poem… What a lot of people needed to slow down…

Slow me down, Lord!

Ease the pounding of my heart

By the quieting of my mind.

Steady my harried pace

With a vision of the eternal reach of time.

Give me,

Amidst the confusions of my day,

The calmness of the everlasting hills.

Break the tensions of my nerves

With the soothing music 

Of the singing streams

That live in my memory.

Help me to know

The magical power of sleep,

Teach me the art

Of taking minute vacations 

Of slowing down

To look at a flower;

To chat with an old friend 

Or make a new one;

To pat a stray dog;

To watch a spider build a web;

To smile at a child;

Or to read a few lines from a good book.

Remind me each day

That the race is not always to the swift;

That there is more to life 

Than increasing its speed.

Let me look upward

Into the branches of the towering oak

And know that it grew great and strong

Because it grew slowly and well.

Slow me down, Lord,

And inspire me to send my roots deep

Into the soil of life’s enduring values

That I may grow toward the stars

Of my greater destiny.

Wilferd A. Peterson.
