Slow Down and Smell the Roses

Garden at Hampton Court - CopyEveryone needs a break in life
And within each is imagination
The workshop of the mind
Ready to energize a nation

So start living in ways that lead
To satisfaction and health
Slow down and smell the roses
For this is the way to spiritual wealth

It’s not something magical
Nor is it mysterious
But simply the result
Of taking God serious

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
