Yesterday with an hour free I sat under our tree. The August 23rd Chambers reading compelled me to go outside.
Having a secret stillness before God means deliberately shutting the door on our emotions and remembering Him”
A copper striped butterfly flew up and joined me and relaxed its wings open. Forcing myself to sit still and enjoy it, while everything in me wanted to take a photo. Sitting with Jesus I recorded the image in my brain. Heat does not seem to faze me so on the hottest day of the year at two pm in the afternoon I watched and listened.
The “hush” in this post inspires.
On this surprisingly cool morning in Indiana, I believe I shall go out and sit under one of my own trees.
Thank you, Trish.
And thank You, Lord, for the copper butterfly and for Oswald Chambers and for Truth and for moments with our Savior.

I know what you mean about resisting the urge to take a photo. For me, there is a constant urge to write about what I see.
But at some point, all my writing becomes it’s own kind of noise and distraction. Sometimes it has to be enough just to listen and not respond immediately.
I can feel the stillness. It is in those quiet moments
that we truly can learn to be one with our creator.
