Have you ever noticed when you purchase a new car, you see many others just like yours?
Or when you are/were pregnant, many other women were pregnant too?
Funny how that happens.
I noticed the same thing last week when I was reading everyone's one little word posts. It seemed as if a common theme thread its way through many posts.
One of relaxation and reflection.
Slowness and simplicity.
Many people seem to be less driven and have more of the attitude of taking time, slowing down and noticing what has been given.
I saw words such as presence, essential, believe, intentional, happy, joy, possible, wonder, developing, contentment, wait and home. I even learned a new word: selah, holy pause, which really encompasses all of these words.
I also noticed that many of these words were not verbs or words of action; they were nouns and adjectives or states of being.
Maybe there was a reason why I noticed.
