“Stillness, calmness, tranquility, peacefulness. However you choose to describe it, such a state is possible only by way of relationship with the master. It is found in him alone. Quietness, according to Scripture. is the very thing God works in you, that he achieves in you. Why? Because his desire for union is greater than your own.” ~David Teems in And Thereby Hangs a Tale: What I Really Know About the Devoted Life I Learned from My Dogs
“May your soul be a resting place for God himself.
When the son of man has no place to lay his head,
may your heart be home enough.”
Still seeking stillness,
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.
Note: Please join my dear friend and psalmist with a camera, Patricia Hunter, on Saturdays throughout October as I take a blog break. Though I may not be sharing words here, I will be reading yours, and I’ll see you back here in November. Much love to you.

Oh. Oh. My soul as a resting place for God?
I need to reflect on that.
And Sandy? Rest well, dear one.

I’m already jealous of your bird photos but this one, its amazing. I love bluebirds so much and not only are they hard to spot but you got it. Wow! I’m so proud of you, ya know? About this kind of surrender with the blog. I pray God uses it in a way you can’t even imagine to speak to you. Love you lots!
I love your photos. Your place here always fills me with peace. Blessings.

Rest during the month of October. I love your bluebird pictures. Just beautiful.
“May your soul be a resting place for God…” I love that thought – He has done so much for me, to think I might do some small thing in return – a resting place. Lovely. Thanks. Janet
Such a beautiful post … as yours always are!
