Searching for some brain space and quiet


The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be. Anne Frank

Last night, Sarah and I sat on the couch and dreamed of places remote where we could go away to the quiet--to be still for hours and hours to ponder life and to just be. How lovely such an escape would be--I chose the ocean and she the mountains--but both would be secluded and quiet.

I have had so little brain space lately as it has all been filled with people, activity, duties and chores.

But God has put on my heart to attempt to be a Mary for a while, hidden away, even for just a bit.

And so today, that is where I will be at least part of the day--hidden and not answering phones or looking at the internet--but just away to empty some of my brain again so I will have a little more time to think and just be.

Peace of the Lord to you all.
