"Enjoy the tempo of a God-breathed life...and the way before you will open up step by step."(26) It's interesting how the next breath and the next step can be so close and yet so distant, all at the same time. My dear little daddy has lived a full and rewarding life, but his next breath and next step are assisted most of the time now. Grateful for the oxygen that helps him breathe and his trusty cane that steadies his next step, he is experiencing life at a whole new pace.
In our fast-paced, breathless lives, it's good to spend a little time with those who travel a little slower.
On the opposite side of life, we have a delightful little grand daughter who is experimenting with walking. At her speed there are lots of eye-catching, attention-capturing wonders that would be totally overlooked otherwise.
For those of us sandwiched somewhere between a one year old and an eighty-two year old, learning to "enjoy the tempo," to reset our pace, may be the greatest gift to discovering the joys of a "God-breathed life." It comes much easier, for me, when I reach out and hold their hands...Dad's, Emma Elizabeth's and God's!
