Still Saturday: All Shaken Up

And we did do some talking, but eventually this wise woman said to me, “Ruth, you are like a jar of river water all shaken up. What you need is to sit still long enough that the sediment can settle and the water can become clear.” ~Ruth Haley Barton in Invitation to Solitude and Silence

Welcome to Still Saturday where we pause after a busy week, move in quiet pilgrimage, maybe linger a while in some still place, and soak in the beauty of images and words. We’d love for you to join us. Get the details above, grab your favorite button, and link up below. We all love to hear if something especially speaks to your heart, but please don’t feel pressured to comment. Simply take some time to gaze long and drink deep.

My friend, Cheryl, is inviting you to take the True Vine Challenge. Here is her introductory post. And the challenge starts here. I’m linking today’s post there, but may explore abiding more in depth during the week.

    My dad used to hollar at us kids in the back seat of our car and tell us to settle down. He meant to be quiet, to be still and shut our mouths and just observe and listen.
