Just Breathe...

Stop for a moment and take a deep breath!
So many things need to be done, but your worth is not measured by this.
You are valuable because you live and breathe.
God created each precious detail of who you are...and He delights in you.
So, in this moment rest in the knowledge that you are loved...and alive for a special purpose.


Life is not measured by the breaths you take, but by its breathtaking moments.
quote by Michael Vance


They listen, care, call, pray, cry, laugh, celebrate...treasured friends.


We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.
quote by Mitsugi Saotome


Family...they give and take love, forgiveness, time,
a listening ear, encouragement, and they are a reflection of your inner beauty.

Give thanks for the moments you laughed until you peed your pants.


Moments to be creative, silly, and fun.


Life is a blessing. Take a moment to be grateful.

I love this post. Sometimes I feel if I am just sitting and breathing that someone somewhere is thinking I should be doing SOMETHING. There are times when just being and breathing should be okay! Whatever chore needs to be done can wait until that quiet moment has passed! For today, I am hoping for many quiet moments! I need them!

Great post, Holly
It truly is wonderful to know that we are special to Him, no matter what.
Your comment on Prayerfully Yours yesterday was so special....as powerful as Jen's post.
Because of His Grace,
Tiz

I love this post, sometimes we do forget. I think that is why God created vacations...we go places where nature is more important than work, beauty is all around and we take a moment to slow down.
