Forced Stillness

image

This morning I arrived at work early after being gone on a business trip to Knoxville, Tennessee, last week. I needed to get some work done in a quiet office. I inserted my key into the glass door leading from outside to the office rooms but nothing happened when I turned the key. This was odd because the same key worked last week before I went out of town. I tried again and again, same result. Finally I decided to go sit in my truck and wait until a coworker pulled into the parking lot. After the initial frustration wore off, I quietly sipped my coffee, breathed deeply, and enjoyed a brief moment of stillness before the day kicked into high gear.

Sometimes it takes a locked door, a frustration, a blocked way, a forced stillness, to remind us that life isn’t about completing tasks, crossing off to-do lists, but being mindful of the blessings that surrounds us, the peace that is always present.

blessings,
