Stop and Think

Have you noticed lately that you have no time to think. I mean really think about things. Do you run from one thing to the next and then to the next without really stopping and thinking? I do.

I love this picture by English artist Philip Wilson Steer (1860-1942). To me the young woman looks like she is really thinking. Maybe she is thinking about how she wants her life to look and how to get there. Perhaps she is praying and has taken the time to stop and think about exactly what she should be praying about. Or maybe she is simply thinking what a beautiful day it is.

The purpose of this post is to remind myself and others that we really do need to take the time to stop and think. It will be time well spent.
