In the Stillness
I’ve been itching to share pictures and words with you. I’ve been buried in the battle. Not many words today, but gifts…oh so many gifts – gifts in birthdays, in painted little faces, in digging in the dirt in Sunday dresses, in the grass blades peaking through the snow, in sunlight and shadows – gifts a plenty!
Between the battle lines and in the juggled mess, I try to slow – to be still – to know that He is God. In the stillness there is much to see, no matter the mess, no matter battle!
Enjoy the pics!
From Psalm 105:1-5
Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
make known among the nations what he has done.
Sing to him, sing praise to him;
tell of all his wonderful acts.
Glory in his holy name;
let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
Look to the Lord and his strength;
seek his face always.
Remember the wonders he has done…
And there is design in the gifts…from my beloved George MacDonald!
People talk about special providences. I believe in the providences, but not in the specialty. I do not believe that God lets the thread of my affairs go for six days, and on the seventh evening takes it up for a moment. The so-called special providences are no exception to the rule–they are common to all men at all moments. But it is a fact that God’s care is more evident in some instances of it than in others to the dim and often bewildered vision of humanity. Upon such instances men seize and call them providences. It is well that they can; but it would be gloriously better if they could believe that the whole matter is one grand providence.
