Stop and Smell the Roses

rosesDo you remember the Mac Davis hit “Stop and Smell the Roses?” Let me refresh your mind by posting the melody to this thought-provoking song.

You’ve got to stop and smell the roses
You’ve got to count your many blessings everyday
You’re going to find your way to heaven is a rough and rocky road
If you don’t stop and smell the roses along the way

People always seem to be in a hurry in our modern day world. Car horns beep from annoyed drivers, video games, TV, and surfing the net have replaced conversation, and we’re so busy that we have to use our cellphones for talking and texting while we are driving. Is it any wonder that people are so stressed out?

Stop and smell the roses. Shut off the electronics and reconnect with your loved ones. Eat dinner together and have some real conversation where everyone contributes. Go outside, get some fresh air, and admire God’s handiwork.

We have so many things to be grateful for, and when we slow down long enough to count our blessings, even the smallest things in our lives take on a new meaning.
