Happy Way of Life #10

Thick, thick steamy not yet even summer day and

without much thought

at all

I decide against a meeting,

not necessarily required but expected.

And go straight home.

Peaceably, later I walk alone.

Intentional, the swing of my arms and the strength of my stride

The sun fades making shadows and settles warm like ocean tide

Shallow, against my legs treading back toward home

As I press on and on

On my own and better

For choosing home over expectation.

“Better is a handful of quietness than two hands full of toil and a striving after wind.”

‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭4:6‬ ‭ESV‬

A happy way of life.

  1. I love this post. I read it last night and really needed it. I tried to leave a comment but my internet started acting up and I finally gave up. It’s so important to remember to slow down, say no to some things and learn to have a happy life. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts in such a creative way. Blessings to you!
