STOP and smell the roses.

“Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children,
you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven”. “You must do something--switch directions and become something you presently are not. Embrace the lowliness and wonder of the child who lives each moment as a gift, not as a stepping-stone for social status. It is to those who live in childlike simplicity that the Kingdom of heaven belongs”.

Sr. Kathryn J. Hermes, F.S.P.

Sr. Kathryn really got me thinking this morning. Do you think that if we were more childlike we would be happier? Would we “stop and smell the roses” more?  Would we not worry about tomorrow so much? These questions and more came to mind today for me. What are your thoughts on this Bible passage?

For me it is a reminder to be happy with our lives as they are now. To enjoy our blessings and to be thankful not wishful.

Take time to smell the roses.
