Spirit Whispers


"I hope you'll hear what I'm about to tell you.
I hope you'll hear it all the way down to your toes.

When you're waiting, you're not doing nothing.
You're doing the most important something there is.
You're allowing your soul to grow up.
If you can't be still and wait, you can't
become what God created you to be."

"When the Heart Waits" by Sue Monk Kidd

Photo taken a few days ago by my daughter, Jill, in Ashland, Oregon.
I thought it was beautiful.
Thanks Jill for sharing your picture.

Do you suppose that's why God told us to be still and KNOW that He is God? It's in the waiting and the stillness that we really come to understand things we never would in the busy-ness around us. I really believe it's true! Love the photo - there's a lot of whimsy there! Makes me smile.
