  • discover life…..Between Appointments

    Life is traveling at the speed of light. It seems our calendars are packed with more and more “important” events, appointments and commitments. We are all in a hurry to go somewhere, fast. Right now a businessman is frantically drinking a second cup of coffee as he races to his next appointment, while a soccer mom is speeding across town to make it to a dance recital, a soccer game and a baseball practice.

    In idle moments, we text, twitter and update our Facebook status while listening to music we just downloaded to our smart phones. We record TV shows with a DVR so we can quickly watch them later and speed through the “slow” sections and commercials. We even pace in front of the microwave as we impatiently wait for our instant meal to heat. In our hurry to go somewhere and do more, we miss too much.

    Beauty is all around us and God, in His wisdom, has given many reasons to, pause, smile, take a deep breath and appreciate this beauty. Unfortunately, in our constant rush and over committed schedules we pass right by incredible moments.

    This site is an attempt to embrace this beauty, occasionally capture it in photographs and encourage others to slow down a bit and discover blessings previously missed. I’m a business man with a full schedule but my camera is with me all the time. As I see something that makes me smile, I stop and snap a few shots. These photos and this site are devoted to "discovering life Between Appointments”.

Have you had a “Between Appointments” moment lately?

Lately, I’ve started to receive emails, photos and phone calls from friends that are rediscovering life’s simple pleasures as they begin to recognize their own “Between Appointments” moments.  Unplanned and previously ignored events are now being appreciated and bringing joy. Maybe it’s recognizing a sunrise on the commute to work, appreciating the feeling of finishing the last page of a great book or maybe it’s just relaxing in front of the fire with absolutely nothing to do and nothing on your mind.  Whenever you discover life Between Appointments, “Contact Us” with your comment or post your thoughts on the Between Appointments Facebook page.  We’d love to hear them.  Thanks in advance for sharing and live a blessed day.
