A quiet gift

Earlier today, as I wrestled with afternoon unmotivation, a friend shared the gift of quiet, given to him. Somehow his soul's stirring sunk deep into mine, a calling from God to come away and rest, to learn His way.

Later, I discovered how I needed that gift today, a stillness truer than my circumstances and the mess I've made of my life. Without it...well, I needed it badly.

Community Group in an hour and a little celebration after that. The quiet is deep within, not dependent on my setting. I will carry it with me, inside.

Thank you, Padawan. And thank You, Spirit.
