Today’s Meditation – “I Will Not Hurry”, a simple prayer of meditation reminding us to see the beauty all around us. Scientists have proven that regular meditation slows the heart rate, promotes a positive spirit and helps relieve stress. This prayer of meditation came from the pocket prayer book that my mother gave to me on my birthday in 2007. It was a gift to her from my dad’s mother, Ellene, who received it from her pastor in 1963. I hope you can take a few moments to find joy in “I will not hurry”…

I will look up into the sky,
Where fleecy clouds and swallows fly;
And somewhere in the day, maybe I will catch whispers, Lord, from
