The Art of Slowing Down: An Angel Message

 In Anselm Gruen's book, Angels of Grace, he writes that the Angel of Slowness would like to introduce you to the art of being.  There are many things we can rediscover by slowing down, and not always rushing to get things done.  Walk slowly, pay attention to every step, leave time for conversation, eat slowly, be deliberately aware of your actions.

An amusing reminder popped up while quickly surfing for a pic for this blog. The perfect road sign.

I decided to slow down and learn more about penguins.

Penguins can't fly, but because their wings are like fins they are excellent swimmers, easily flipping from one realm to the other, land to sea.  Always elegantly dressed in formal attire, penguins are ready to step out in style. Respectful, they walk in single file, often bowing to each other.  When the male falls in love with his prospective mate, he will give her a gift of a pebble. The couple works together in family matters. After laying their eggs, the females take off on an epic journey to the sea in search of food. The fathers stay behind to keep the egg warm while the mothers are away.  Two months later, the females return for a joyful reunion, just in time to witness the birth of their babies.
I'm thankful for the angel message to take it slow and easy today.  Patience must have its perfect work. You never know what may happen when you're fully present each moment. Things you may have missed in a hurry will brighten your day.  

Love and joyful blessings,
