Escape From Confusion

We live in a complex age, a time of great confusion. People rush madly from one place and thing to another. There seems to be time for nothing. The pace is taking its toll in a steady increase of neurotics and psychotics. A helpful suggestion for escape from confusion is to be found in the following recipe which we copied from a recent issue of Nuggets from the pen of an anonymous author:

“Amid the confusion of my day, give me the calmness of the everlasting hills. Teach me the art of taking minute vacations, of slowing down to look at a flower, to chat with a friend, to pet a dog, to read from a good book. Remind me to look upward at the towering oak, and to know that it grew tall and strong because it grew slowly and well.” - James W. Adams, Gospel Visitor
