The Still Life

posted by Sharon May 11, 2012 3 Comments

Has your week been anything but still and peaceful? In my family, this week has included an auto accident resulting in a totaled car — but a son who is alive and very well, thank God. Unwelcome job news, friends struggling, a memorial service for someone I’ve known since my childhood. In the middle of the whirlwind comes the reminder: be still. Wind down. Look at priorities. Find the core of what matters.

Not a bad mantra as we head toward the weekend, no matter what it holds: Be still, be still.

So glad that your son is ok. We had the same experience with our daughter this winter. Totaled car, but life preserved. Thank you God! Prayers for a better week next week.

This picture has a hint of mystery to it. Like, where is this bowl sitting? I love that it is slightly off balance, like life, but still steady and full.
