Be Still in Time


You know my flesh and read my mind.

Help me to fall into Your arms,

Instead of the grip of time.”


“Be still, and know that I AM God.” Psalm 46:10 NKJV


“LORD, You have searched me and known me…

You understand my thought afar off…

And are acquainted with all my ways.” Psalm 139:1-3 NKJV


“But one thing is needed, and Mary

Has chosen that good part,

Which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:42 NKJV

Wisdom’s Rest

“Arise let us go from here.” John 14:31

“Entering into Sunday’s rest.

What this week holds

Jesus knows best.

Begin the day at His feet;



And Wisdom

He does bequeath.”


Peace I leave with you,

My Peace I give to you;

Not as the world gives do I give you.

Let not your hearts be troubled,

Neither let it be afraid…

Arise let us go from here.”

John 14:27 & 31 (NKJV)

Craziness Stops Here…

Still waters spring 3747

“Beside still waters,

A quiet,

Settled spot.

A place where

Activity ceases;

Craziness stops.”


“Come to Me,

all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens,

and I will give you rest.”

Matthew 11:28

Off to women’s retreat for refreshment and rest.

Blessings to my neighbors,

In our friendship,

I am truly blessed.

Two States Later…

Two states and two stories later, we have made it to our Barnes and Noble pilgrimage. The boy is squirreled up in an aisle reading to his heart delight. Pappa Bear off with grandson to a hobby store. I’m breathing a breath by myself in an easy chair overlooking the world we left behind. We are ready to go home. Oklahoma bound.


With the flutter of a wing…

In a Word…Heavy – “Kabed”

“…for this thing is too heavy for thee…” Exodus 18:18

“Kabed” With the flutter of a wing, opening the path of the heart to find refuge and rest –

When the burdens of the day, the efforts of a heavy week have physically and mentally been more than one can bear, in a Word He comforts me.

“Come to Me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 (ESV)
