A collection of random thoughts and images
from the life of a busy professional who is
working at finding peace and restoration while
trying to make the most of every day. May, by
the way, is "just" one of my cats, but she thinks
she runs my life =)

Still and Quiet
"I feel within me a peace above all earthly dignities, a still and quiet conscience." ~ William Shakespeare
This time last weekend, I was on my way up to Rangeley, ME to spend the 4th of July holiday with my family. Since the girls started college, we don't often get together all 11 of us, so when we have the opportunity, we make the most of it. Usually when we're at the cabin, peace and quiet reigns. This time, with so much change going on with everyone (college for the oldest boy, medical school for the oldest girl, job change for me, potential job change for my brother-in-law, possible school change for the youngest boy), our time together was not as peaceful as it has been.
Still, the surroundings demanded that we let go of the stresses in our lives and pay attention to what God had in mind for us. When He uses the whole sky to get your attention, you have to listen, take note, let go, and let Him do His work in you.
