“Atmosphere is created when we bring our memories, thoughts, and emotions to a place. It is our physical presence that makes a space become real . . .
“Dare to awaken your soul to be physically present.
“Taste the atmosphere with God and bring all the stories you’re living–the joy, heartbreak, worries, hopes, and dreams that lie deep within–and find your home with Jesus.
“Our journey to rest, after all, is a homecoming to become the beloved.
“To rest. As is.”

Leaving some whitespace here this month as I rest with Bonnie.
I’ve been reading and writing on a chapter a day.
And now we’ve come to the end.
Which can really be just a beginning.
I’ve loved having you on the journey.
In the stillness,
This post is part of the “Finding Spiritual Whitespace Blog Tour” of which I have been a part, along with a group of soulful, journeying kindreds. To learn more, click here.
Welcome to the Still Saturday Community 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 reflect on the depth of sparse words. We’d love for you to join us. Grab the 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 be still together, to gaze long and drink deep.
