Be Still and Know …

IMG_20140829_113436

I believe everyone has times when life is crazy.

There are things to do, places to be,

and people to see.

And because it’s typical, maybe even expected,

we slowly learn to respond.

But what if…

you find yourself in stillness, in quiet,

and alone?

Some people look for something, or anything, to busy themselves,

while others balk feel like a deer caught in headlights.

As the years pass by,

there is a need I constantly find,

the need to stop,

take a breath,

and probe my heart.

I find the need to journal,

to talk to Someone who knows and loves me more than I know and love myself.

And not only that,

but to listen, search, trust, and obey.

And therein lies my peace.

-in busyness and in quiet-

-not in circumstances or persons-

but in the truth.

And honestly, it doesn’t hurt to do it in style –

evidenced by an adorable journal, a vivacious lip color, and some delicate perfume.

What do you do in those periods in life?

Have  a lovely day!
