Slow Down!

Slow down, dear friend--you're dashing to and fro!
Slow down, dear friend, you're missing out you know.
The flowers outside await you, the chores will still be there,
Step outdoors and breathe some fresh air.

Slow down dear friend, catch a deep breath,
Slow down dear friend, wind down and rest,
For your days are so busy, the little details by you race
You miss the good things in life, slow down your pace!

Slow down dear friend, your little ones call,
Slow down dear friend, toss Johnny the ball.
Slow down dear friend, and laugh at little things,
Slow down dear friend, and enjoy what God bring. :)
