Be Still
Sometimes we just need to be still. We need to tune out all the "craziness" of this world and just be still. We need to focus and turn on minds onto what is important and what is not. We need to reevaluate how we are living our lives, how we are spending our time ,and where our real priorities lie. It's good to take the time to do this once and awhile as we travel on this path called life. Sit back and be still. That's exactly what I did on my blogging break. I was still. I prayed. I listened. I was still some more. I'm so very glad I did!
"Be still and know that I am God"
Psalm 46:10
I want to send my love and appreciation to each one of you who showed such concern for me. You truly touched my heart.

Good for you!

I've been feeling a little bit of a need for this myself.....Blogs are so great and I am the better for much of what I've read. However, sometimes I feel a need to get away from all the different voices and opinions.

I might be taking a little break soon myself. (o:

Blessings,
