The Courage to be Still




Be still and know that I am God…




Still as an adjective; not moving or making a sound...

...and as a noun; deep silence and calm

On what is likely the last nice day of the year, it is still as a noun that I am seeking

Leave the dishes in the sink and go outside to join the playing voices

Some things can wait, and some cannot

This is the gift of stillness

The kind of stillness in which I am not held captive by my mind’s urgency

The stillness that begins within

The stillness that alerts me that I am not God


With gratitude,
Joanna
