Be still.....in this day and age, sometimes that's so hard to do. We seem to always be so busy, rushing here and there, always doing something. This past weekend I was feeling under the weather. But instead of pushing through like I always try to do, I decided to be still. A totally foreign concept to me, but I did it. I wrapped up in my favorite afghan, sat in my comfy chair, put my feet up, and did NOTHING. At first I felt a little guilty, after all there were so many things that needed to be done, but I tried to ignore that feeling. And I just sat... and thought... and reflected on the goodness of God and all that he's done for me and how he's continued to bless me over and over again, not because of what I've done, but because of who I am. I am his daughter, a child of the most high God. And you know what? At the end of the day, the stuff was still undone, physically I still wasn't 100%, but I felt really good.
Be still and know that I am God.
For today's layout I used a photo I took of the sunrise at our women's retreat last year.
