it’s the hardest thing
in the world
just to be still,
and let you love me.
But because I am loved and I love,
Here I am, Father.
Still for once.
Closer than I’ve ever been.
Love me, Father.
- Brennan Manning in Souvenirs of Solitude:Finding Rest in Abba’s Embrace
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 on the left, 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.
I’m in Tennessee, friends, where a group of us is gathering before leaving for Haiti in the morning. I don’t know how reliable our WiFi will be–or if it will work at all. Also, I purchased an iPad rather than lug my computer along this year, and I’m having quite a learning curve with it. So if I’m unable to check in this week, please forgive me. And oh how I covet your prayers.
