This sign in Washington, DC, reminded me of the pace this world seems to be in most of the time.

I think that’s one of the reasons waiting is so difficult.

It’s almost as if the “idling” stage is illegal.

On the escalators we road to and from the metro train, people who were in a hurry would literally run past us on the left as we rode the stairs up or down.

I guess they viewed the ride as a time of pointless idling when they had places to go, people to see, work to be done.

We even found ourselves walking on the escalator as the trip progressed instead of simply staying put and enjoying the few minutes of peace.

Today, if you have a chance to either move on or stay put,

I hope you’ll choose to “stay put” and simply soak up the moment around you.

Life goes by so quickly.

Idle for more than three minutes every chance you can!

Psalm 46:10


“He says, “Be still, and know that I


am God;

I will be exalted among the nations,

I will be exalted in the earth.”
