Enjoying the Process

I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and getting it done a little less. (Anna Guindlen, writer)

A lot of us would agree with Guindlen. We are often in such a hurry to finish something that we don’t appreciate the process of doing it. Whether it’s a pain-staking project (like wood-working or writing) or a vacation trip, sometimes we just can’t wait to finish or to get there, so we miss the pleasure of the work or the trip. Slow down and enjoy the present.

And so, dear friends, while you are waiting for these things to happen, make every effort to be found living peaceful lives that are pure and blameless in his sight. (2 Peter 3:14)
