Quiet & Still



I'm not feeling my best right now. In fact, I think I may have be coming down with a cold or something. I really shouldn't be blogging either (maybe I'm just too dedicated or addicted to this blogging thing) but, I thought I would drop this ephinany on you.

Like all of you, I hate being sick (at least, I hope you hate being sick too). But, when I am, it forces me to be two things... quiet and still. When I'm quiet and still, it doesn't matter what is going on around me. I am at once alone with my thoughts and I can hear things. I can hear or (at least) feel something at my core that lets me see clearly what path I need to be on, where I need to go, what I need to be doing, and it let's me know how blessed I am.

I'm sure I'll feel better tomorrow. Be still and know that He is...

(Those who know, also know that I don't need to finish that sentence, right?)

The reflective moments you mention are the moments when we are most fragile...and most real.

I hope you feel better soon...for some reason, this makes me want to go home and make some homemade veggie/noodle soup.

Aww, Keithy, I hope you feel better soon. Don't kiss our babies! Store that lovin' up for when you're well. And I hope it's soon. We don't want our playdate delayed! Could it be H1N1?? I know you get around and know lots of folk who get around...the world. Be well, be still and KNOW.

That's right Keith, you said it best.... Psalm 46:10 God is trying to get you to be still. Aloneness and quietness will reveal what he wants you to do next!

Love and get well wishes
Free Spirit
