The last few days have seen me very much in this earthly world; I have seen manipulation, lies, greed, rudeness, power, deceit, hopelessness, selfishness and anger.

I must say that there has also been support, friendship and strength.

In my sheltered life, this has been a shock, yet if I was in the corporate world, the political arena or media, this would be my daily experience.

I can't say that I have the stomach for it and am glad to disappear into the woodwork again. I have questionned and stated my views, my concerns and findings into an issue. Hopefully some good will come of it for many.

Boy am I tired though.......
And then, "As the deer pants for streams of water......" Ps42:1,
I was still.

I have just read a chapter in this book,that has reminded me of God's powerful presence in the beauty around us in His creation.

This book reminded me that we are meant to take time from the mundane, difficult, tedious and be still and be in awe of the seasons, the sunset or sunrise, the ocean, trees, the stars, the colour in flowers and so on.......We are told to stop worrying and take this all in.........

"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labour or spin......" Matthew 6:19

I was able to see Sally Clarkson at a homeschool convention in my state several years ago. I have read some of her books too and I am convinced we all need to pull them out and read them over again from time to time. She was actually less than two hours away a few weekends ago for a conference, but I had some interferences so was unable to attend....woe. Are you aware of her website?

I appreciate this book recommendation. I've yet to read her books, but I think I'll hunt for a copy now. Thank you!
