This is a famous movie quote from the 1986 film, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." How often do you "stop to smell the roses"? Do you take time to enjoy life's simple pleasures? Or are you constantly rushing from one obligation to the next? Describe either one former moment you stopped to appreciate or one of the latter sets of busy day-to-day tasks that kept you from stopping to enjoy something small.
O God, I thank You for this day of life, For eyes to see the sky, For ears to hear the birds, For feet to walk amidst the trees, For hands to pick the flowers from the earth, For a sense of smell to breathe in the sweet perfumes of nature, For a mind to think about and appreciate the magic of everyday miracles, For a spirit to swell in Joy at Your Mighty Presence Everywhere.
