A Matter of Focus

How easy it is to lose focus.  This world moves so fast.  Everything around us pushes us to lose sight of what is important, instead becoming distracted by things around us.  Sometimes the things that distract us are wonderful, beautiful, worthy, but they too can pull our attention away.  

 So how can I challenge this lens through which I view life?  I slow down.  I breathe more deeply.  I calm myself.  Then I am able to see.  Then the lens will focus, without my shaking, hurried hand.  When I am able to do that, often a beautiful moment appears, one that could have easily been lost.
A quiet still moment.  One that I too easily overlook when I move quickly through life.
What is your focus this season?
