Still Saturday: Taking Time

“We simply haven’t taken time.

We’ve not been still long enough, often enough,

to know ourselves, our friends, our family.

Our God.

Indeed, the worst hallucination busyness conjures

is the conviction that

I am God. 

All depends on me. 

How will the right things happen at the right time

if I’m not pushing and pulling

and watching and worrying?”

~Mark Buchanan in The Rest of God

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.

      Morning, Shelly. I do love Mark’s writing. I could quote him every day. :)

      Praying for some sweet stillness in space and spirit, my friend.

      You’re a wise woman, my friend. Very wise. Praying for you as you take some time to be still and know. xoxo

      I love everything he writes. Love. And you will love that book, Kris. Soon you’ll be quoting it, too. 😉

    I so needed to read that this morning. I am suffering the effects of my capacity conundrum (I think I can do it all). Thank you for the sweet blessing. I’m off to buy the book, and take some quiet time to read it.
    Peace and good to you.
