At noon today, take a pause in what you’re doing or thinking about. Make a note of it, and write a post about it later.

I was having a quiet moment sitting in the sun after church before making a light brunch. We’d be having enough to eat later. I was also thinking about my menu for Easter dinner and running through the list of what I’d planned and when I needed to do everything. But I didn’t feel any pressure or hurry about it — it didn’t need to be done “now”.

It was a nothing moment really — just a quiet reflection of the day, the Easter message, the beauty of the day with the daffodils blooming all around, and the blessing of having a great extended family and beautiful grandchildren, some of whom I would be spending time with later.

It’s the kind of “nothing” moment I should take time for more often. Nothing pressing to do “now”, just enjoying the moment. So often, I’m thinking about what has to be done, feeling like I ought to be doing some more important. Yet this is just the sort of break we all need at time: quiet reflection, a clear head, and taking peace in just being.

I remember feeling peaceful and relaxed. I knew it was and would be a nice day, and everything would take care of itself.
