Majesty, Mystery

Wednesday afternoon I sat on the porch, read my Bible, furiously journal-ed & soaked up the gorgeous Spring weather. The longer I sat, the deeper I grew in awe of God’s creation…. His majesty, His mystery. I hear your birds sing as the wind rustles leaves all around. Gazing into your blue sky, remarkably clear, effortlessly smooth, wondering– how the clouds form…. why they float … Continue reading Majesty, Mystery

Honest Heart

My desire for Still Waters and purpose in creating the blog is to share honesty with my readers, no matter how frightening this transparency can be.

Light is Everywhere

After an overwhelming response filled with love, encouragement & humility to the introduction of Still Waters (thank you so much from the very bottom of my heart), I intended to share more with you during the middle of this week. Unfortunately, my pancreas had other plans for me… doesn’t it always?! Sadly, my pancreas spiraled (even more) out of control, into another miserable full-blown attack, … Continue reading Light is Everywhere
