While scurrying around the yard I caught a wiff of something wonderful. The old adage “stop and smell the roses” immediately came to mind as I was drawn to this plant and away from my yard duties. If only you could “scratch-n-sniff” these old-fashioned lilacs!

I’ll admit it. Pausing in general isn’t easy for me. How about you? When is the last time you paused to receive those things which God has placed around you as specific reminders of his splendor?

“Be still and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Psalm 46:10, 11
