Find Time For Stillness

     “But here’s what I’ve discovered:  The people who find time for stillness are the people who have the energy and perspective to stay on top of their hectic “outer” lives.”

  • Very true, Cheryl.  Thanks for sharing.

  • That is so true!
    By the way I went ahead and got Xanga so I could comment here and remembered why I blogged here awhile back and so now I have a blog here and not sure what I will do with the other one…
    Wishing you a day filled with sweet and simple joys! ♥

  • The Spirit of Loveliness is one of my MOST favorite books.  A dear friend gave it to me for my Bday one year.  Unfortunately, a neighbor borrowed it and has since moved away.  But now that you’ve reminded me of it, maybe I’ll put it on my Amazon wish list!!

  • Cheryl,
    I am happy to be home once again and enjoying the precious summer days, and the motivation of your blog. Dear sweet friend, I believe your encouragement has been uppermost in my reading these days. Since completing my “Confessions of an Organized Homemaker” I have cleaned out the big freezer, revamped my pantry in the garage, begun reorganization of the game closet, and enjoyed a refreshing of our bedroom/office. We intend to pick blueberries, so I need to check with our local farm. My new reading book is “Your Brain on Joy”. Ahhh, sigh, the sweet taste of summer again. Keep up the good work.

    Love & Blessings, Jean

  • @hindsfeet11 – Thank you sweet friend!  Your words have encouraged me today just when I needed some encouragement to stay the course!
