Being still

A friend wrote me this morning and asked me to pray for her to learn (again) to be still before the Lord and to wait to hear him. I just sat here and stared at my screen because that is exactly what I'd asked God to do in my heart yesterday. To teach me (again) to be still with him. To listen. To wait before him.

I love Thanksgiving. I love Christmas. I love the holidays. But not all the time. Sometimes I hear Jingle Bells (for the 497th time) and it makes me want to run and stick my head in a vat of eggnog.

Life--not to mention this time of year--can be so hectic and demanding that I often lose the "quietness" within myself. I get snappy (imagine that...) and impatient (who knew) and can be downright rude (yep, sad but true). All because I lose my center. My focus. I'm still reading God's Word, I'm still praying, still dwelling on him, but I forget to be still.
So, if you're so inclined, I'd appreciate you praying for me to learn (again) to "be still" in Him. And to listen. I'll be praying the same for everyone who reads this.

Back this afternoon with the winners of our giveaway!

And here's a pic of Jack with our Christmas tree! The house is all decorated and lovely, though I was pretty crabby when I was stringing all those lights. I needed to be writing! See, told you I needed to learn to be still again. ;-)
