My granddaughter was to come over today. But we scratched those plans when it started to snow.
There was a major pile-up on the interstate south of us and another one on the interstate north of us. They were wise to stay home.
When I read early this morning, I was sure Olivia would provide an anecdote for today’s post! Instead, the afternoon passed quietly.
The snow has fallen steadily and not many are venturing out. I had the hum and buzz of the washer and dryer to keep me company.
I put a pot of chili on the stove to simmer and the spices are permeating the air. Everything is white outside and I had to turn on some lamps to see as the afternoon light waned.
It’s completely still.
God works best when we are in stillness.
“…God will never say to us, “Stand still, “Sit still,” or “Be still,” unless He is going to do something. This is our problem regarding the Christian life: we want to do something to be Christians, instead of allowing Him to work in us.” from Crumbs in “Streams in the Desert”

1 Samuel 23:15, “David kept out of the way in the wilderness of Ziph, secluded at Horesh…” The Message
God works best in stillness.
Psalms 7:9, 10, “…You get us ready for life: You probe for our soft spots, You knock off our rough edges. And I’m feeling so fit, so safe: made right, kept right.” The Message
He constantly works on us internally. He is not trying to make perfect little soldiers. We are not identical. He created us with weaknesses and they are what He uses to reveal Himself to others.

I know! And I am in an empty house most of the time! My mind just keeps going. I have to listen to worship music to shut it off.
