Deep Breath (Hedgewyck)
Our lives are much like this as well. Often when it seems as if nothing at all is happening on the outside, great activity is taking place within. I have trouble with the stillness, wanting to urge events forward, quicken the pace. We have been taught so well that faster is better. We have learned to multi-task, doing many things but focusing our full attention on none. It is a shallow way to live. Many things are done, but nothing is really done well. I need to learn to accept, perhaps even enjoy, the stillness that comes during the still seasons of my life and let the growth that they nurture unfold in its own time.
