The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Ps 34.18)

You’d better slow down. Don’t dance so fast Time is short the music won’t last.


Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round

Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You’d better slow down.  Don’t dance so fast

Time is short the music won’t last.

Do you run through each day?

When you ask, “How are you?”  Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done do you lie in your bed with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down.  Don’t dance so fast

Time is short the music won’t last.

Ever told your child,  we’ll do it tomorrow and in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,  let a good friendship die.

Because you never had time to call and say “Hi”?

You’d better slow down don’t dance so fast

Time is short the music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere you miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift…. thrown away…

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.

(David L. Weatherford)
