Be Still . . . Be Quiet

be still and know that I am God

“Be still, and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10

Sometimes my soul 
to sit 
absorbing the sounds of
    rippling water,
having prayer requests
    no agenda.   

I have been eyeing this quiet nook a couple times a week, 
all summer long. 
Often I have considered how I might get back in there, sit and  be quiet.  

Today I can't resist and from my spot at the foot of the tree, I find what I am looking for.

  2. This is a real treat to see and to read. Thank you so much. And I’m a “watery” person, too. LOVE streams, oceans, bays, lakes, waterfalls. AND rocks. LOTS of rocks. I’m an addict of these things. Thank you much for your sharing post this time.
