I Just Want Enough Time

“I speak to God: I don’t really want more time; I just want enough time. Time to breathe deep and time to see real and time to laugh long, time to give You glory and rest deep and sing joy and just enough time in a day not to feel hounded, pressed, driven, or wild to get it all done — yesterday.

In a world with cows to buy and fields to see and work to do, in the beep and blink of the twenty-first century, with its ‘live in the moment’ buzz phrase that none of the whirl-weary seem to know how to do, who actually knows how to take time and live with soul and body and God all in sync? To have the time to grab the jacket off the hook and time to go out to all air and sky and green and time to wonder at all of them in all the light, this time refracting in prism. I just want to do my one life well” (Ann Voskamp).

I’m gonna leave that right there. No need to add anything or elaborate further because this says it all perfectly.

I might add that Ann Voskamp has a new book called The Broken Way that I’m really loving. Here’s the link if you want to go buy something awesome:

Good night, friends. Be sure and cherish all the moments you’re given for as long as you’re given them.
