Stillness has been a stranger to me, my own fault. I don't even realize it until I take a moment, pick a piece of sky, and look. After brief seconds, I realize I have failed to see what I am seeing now, that I have been absent. Much goodness has passed me by-- no, it has been there all the while, but gone unnoticed.
Thank you, God, for awakening me, even for but a moment. Help me resist the temptation to fill such moments with anything but You.
