To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.
~William Henry Channing

Everyday

Everyday Quiet


Everyday.
take time everyday...
to think...
to contemplate...
to dwell...
to feed...
to revel
in His...
goodness...
steadfastness...
mercy...
grace...
forgiveness...
strength...
Everyday.
no matter how busy...
no matter how much there is to do...
no matter what burdens...
no matter what joys...
Everyday.

"Therefore the Lord waits to be gracious to you,
and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you."
Isaiah 30: 18a

this is so sweet to my ears. i've been trying to focus on having at least five minutes of utter silence (within my control) everyday. just to stop and let God take control of my mind and lead it where He wants to. it's beautiful to see where He leads...you should try it!
