One who moves too hurriedly misses the way.
Speeding through life, you miss the BEAUTY & MESSAGE of the present moment. I bought a book a while back with a title that says it well > “Too Busy Not To Pray: Slowing Down To Be With God”.
This is one of those things you never regret, like spending quality time with your kids. When was the last time you heard someone say late in life, “Yeah if just hadn’t spent so much time with my children as they were growing up, I really could’ve gotten a lot more done! Oh to do it over…” [?]

Jesus went up into a mountain to pray, and He spent all nite in prayer to God.
Oh look, what a coincidence, the gospel reading fits perfectly with the Proverb for the day. God is weird, in the best way…
Jesus could have been the busiest man ever, he had whole towns after Him for what He could give them. But He always took time to slow down & be with His Father, to just pray to Him.
We think we are too busy to sit & pray. What a joke. What a victory of deceit for the evil one.
Remember, whenever you say “I don’t have time for something” what you’re really saying is “I value something else more.”
