Generally what is more important than getting watertight answers is learning to ask the right questions.
~ Madeleine L’Engle, Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art
Wisdom tells me to ask, and then stop. And listen.
Ears and eyes and heart wide open.
Isn’t this a wiser course than where my natural tendency wants to take me in terms of needing to do something and fretting and obsessing about a solution? Doesn’t wisdom offer me the gift of maintaining my peace? Isn’t Divine wisdom from the Creator of all of this always the better thing?
Be still and know.

An evening with Barbra Streisand on Netflix.
A surprise in the works.
An afternoon spent with words.
