         Stop  and  Stare


From time to time, each and every one of us needs a break from daily routine. Without such a break or ‘breather’ we become worn out. Jesus regularly took time for himself, away from the crowds. Time to pray, to think, to breathe freely




What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

Wm. Henry Davies (1871-1940)
