Moments of Still-ness
Moments of Still-ness a honey-sweet blessing when mixed with a full cup of Busy-ness.
And über busy would describe our summer.
It is good.
I am grateful.
Entering my life for the past two days have been welcomed moments of quiet, reserve, Still-ness and reflection. This I was waiting for, this I needed.
What "stills" my heart:
Discovering a new flower that looks like a split-petal daisy.
The wonder on a child's face in her own moment of Still-ness.
While walking discovering a huge, red mushroom. It perched like a ruby red jewel from deep in the earth.
Ripe pears with creamy brie and crackers.
Turtle-Turtle, a tiny two inch box turtle found on our patio.
Did she drop from the sky?
Quiet fun, naming her, pondering where she came from.
For me the beauty of Still-ness comes with slowing down enough to really SEE and FEEL the little
tender mercies around me.
