Spend Time Alone in Nature

 


An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.

God is Found in Stillness

 


Find stillness and you find God.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

We need to find God,
and He cannot be found in noise and restlessness.
God is the friend of silence.
See how nature - trees, flowers, grass - grows in silence;
see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...
We need silence to be able to touch souls.
- Mother Teresa

God is found in stillness.
To know God is to stop and be still.
Listen to the spirit within you.
Communion with God happens internally.
You will never meet God in the hustle and bustle of life.
Learn to be silent. It is here that you will find God.
- Tanya Guerrier

what comes between you and God.
Ask yourself.
Then listen!
- Johannes Tauler

There is a serene and settled majesty to woodland scenery
that enters into the soul and delights and elevates it,
and fills it with noble inclinations.
- Washington Irving

you'll come to understand that you're connected with everything.

I am a Unique Expression

Do Your Best, Accept the Rest

who make the best of the way things turn out.

and always do your best.
