Whats Missing?

Does this picture bring back memories for anyone? Do you ever remember sitting on a porch like this on a spring day with a glass of iced tea or lemonade? Just sitting there slowly rocking back and forth with a cool breeze gently blowing, only your thoughts to keep you company. Maybe Even the smell of fresh cut hay or grass and the sound of...well nothing.
We all need these times. We live in such a fast paced society. You barely have time to read this and are already thinking about all the things you must do after this daily thought. STOP! Just for a minute close your eyes and spend a little time with God. Find a quiet place. If you don't have a swing like this you might have to go to the car put on a a little music and pray for a few minutes and then listen. Listen for the sound of God speaking to you. Try it. God wants to spend time with you every day. That is why He created us...for fellowship with Him. Even Jesus had to take time out and pray and be still a little each day. You might not hear the sound of a gentle breeze but you might hear the sound of your creator whispering to you and telling you how much He loves you, so much that He would die for you and maybe just maybe you might have something to say to Him in return.
Mark 1:35 (New American Standard Bible)
In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there.
