Going at a snail’s pace means to be moving very slow. This little creature moved slow enough for me while I was traveling the vineyards in Napa Valley, CA. It appeared that this snail was on a mission as we crossed paths. Where it was headed I never stayed around to find out. I was appreciative of the few moments I had to capture this photo as we both ventured off to accomplish our mission for the day.
Coming across this photo today caused me to take a moment to breathe. To break away from my fully packed schedule to take a moment to tell God thank you for all that He has done for me and all that He is going to do.
I’m in the middle of having my first book published, building my photography business, and keeping my finances in tact, planning my book launching event, managing the teen’s ministry at my church, organizing a women’s conference in September, updating two websites, and organizing our vacation bible school this summer.
Oh, sure, the list continues to grow and I manage to keep it all going because I know what I do for God will last. I’m excited about everything going on in my life right now and know that one day I too will be able to slow down, perhaps to a snail’s pace, and take it all in.
I know that God will not give us more than we can bear and I am encouraged that with all that I have to accomplish that He will be glorified. I’ve prayed for success and not counting the cost, I am hopeful that the angels that are assigned to me will give me that extra push that I need, daily, to do everything with passion. Soon and very soon I will be able to enjoy a life even at a snail’s pace.
Until my next adventure,
