Inspirational Thursday-Be Ever So Still

Be ever so still, be ever so quiet, let the rush of the

wind caress your weary limbs.

Seek not to hear with your might...

                                          But your soul.

Rest quietly on these steps and hear the singing of the cicadas.

If you listen carefully the rhythm of their song will quiet you.

You will hear the perfect cadence of the life that has been designed

for you and you alone.  You needn't question, wonder or worry.

The smallest of creatures know their perfect plan.  Let nature

engulf you and comfort you with the knowledge that you are

right where you need to be.

May peace reside in your soul always...

Jemma's home is a quiet spot nestled among the trees. You might find me writing, reading, or puttering in my Greenhouse, tweaking a recipe, crafting a wreath or loving on my grands. Always living with a grateful heart.
