Simply Be

The week passes with its share of joys, worries, frustrations and delights.  




Life is such a combination of opposites -- mostly at the same time. 


Sometimes I just need to be still...




to not feel anything

to not think

to let the decisions of the future,
wait in the future

to look outside my window at the birds trusting their Creator,
and learn from them.


Leaning back against the Strength of Him who holds the worlds together, 
who holds me together,
I breathe.

Letting go of the burdens of  the day, 
letting go of the heaviness in my heart,
letting go of the swirling thoughts,
I rest.

And in the silence
there is peace.


Sometimes all that is needed is to simply be.


"Be still
and know
that I AM God."
