I'm quieter these days. Partly because it's winter and photography slows down - much welcomed after a crazy summer and fall! But, it's not just that, I'm quieter in myself too. Spending a lot of time at home with my kids, reading, relaxing, enjoying my home...the sun shining through my living room helps a ton! I'm really enjoying this time and thankful for it. I'm dreaming of warmer weather (and smiling as I write that.) With the time change comes hope that the sun is around for a while. Wasn't it nice to see the sun up at dinner time the last couple of days? Spring is coming and summer will follow.
I used to resist quiet and slowing down like a plague of some sort. But, I'm changing. I crave quiet now. Prayer has become a high value...resting is essential. I still struggle with doing vs. being. But, at least now it's a desire of my heart.
Something to think about.
