Slow down

Take the time to stop and stare
Hurry and impatience will get us
No where. Slow down take control
Enjoy the fresh breeze, do something
That will profit and keep away disease 

Slow down take a deep breath enjoy today
Stress free living, keep that at bay. Life is 
Too short live it to the full, your heavenly
Father designed us that way.
