Calm and Quiet

In my corner of the world where the weather feels more like spring than winter, it plays mind tricks. As the Christmas music plays in the background and normally a cup of hot chocolate by the fireplace would be welcomed, instead, I have found myself outside walking in the morning hours in just a sweatshirt.

It doesn’t feel like Christmas will be here next week.

I have been a little absent from the blogging world due to so many things in my life coming at me full speed. Ending a job. Starting a new job. Christmas preparations. Exhaustation. News of husband’s job situation.

It feels like a million emotions right now.

It feels exciting, overwhelming, scary, hopeful, hopeless…all rolled into one.

I know what I need in times like this, is simply to be quiet, to rest at His feet.

One of my favorite songs right now is “Breathe” by Jonny Diaz. If you haven’t heard the song before, I encourage you to listen to it. It reminds us all in the craziness of our lives to just stop and breathe.

I know I definitely need a reminder, several reminders, daily to just stop and be quiet. To take time to pray, to be at the feet of Jesus.

Even if you aren’t “feeling” in the Christmas spirit this year or if you are completely immersed in the holiday happenings around you, take some time to be calm and quiet with Him.
