Meaningingful Message

Among life's richest blessings to me are our precious biological children and darling nieces and nephews.

I cherish each one of them.

This year, for Christmas, I loved all the gifts given to me by my grown children and sweet nieces .

One of them gave me a gift that will bring meaning to my life every single day of 2014.

She did hand-painted flowers on canvas and lettered phrases from the Bible as gifts for  aunts.

I love my new gift and have it hanging in the kitchen underneath the miniature curios shelving unit.

It matches perfectly the room's walls which are done in a paint called "Morning Sunshine."

Sometimes, like most of us, I get caught up in a flurry of activities and loud distractions that are part of life.

This is a perfect reminder to be still and think about our heavenly Father on a daily basis.

What a very special gift, Susan.

And in answer to your question, I don't "find" moments for stillness. I "make" them. (I know that sounds kind of blunt and maybe boastful--not my intent.) So essential is "stillness" to me, that I honor the quiet and stillness that I need by frequent evaluation of my schedule and deliberate paring down of activities...

This is a my very favorite line of Scripture! A friend just used it in her mother's funeral too. We have blowing snow and frigid air this morning. I am thinking you must be having about the same. Happy cold Sunday!

Mine is Trust in the Lord with all your heart...very meaningful for me too and it matches my decor in my kitchen too which blue/ how did she know that? What a wonderful gift! Enjoy yours!

Hello from Spain: is a very special and unique gift. I like. I search and I have moments of reflection when I'm in church. Keep in touch

Hi Susan -

What a neat gift! I love the simplicity combined with the scripture.

Happy New Year,
Susan :)

I can't say that over the last few years that I've really known stillness. Life dealt me a curve ball that I never saw coming when we lost Kelly and I hope that I will continue to heal and find my faith once more. Your post is lovely, XOXO

The stillness is essential. I love and use that scripture often.

Hope that you are warm, safe and cozy Susan!

I love her painting. And what a thoughtful, lovely gift. Best wishes, Tammy

What a sweet and thoughtful gift. This is the type of gifts I like to get. I have no trouble finding moments of stillness...but my best is early in the morning with my bible and praise time.
