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.

Rest. Trust.

Ask. Listen.

Simple happy.

An evening with Barbra Streisand on Netflix.

A surprise in the works.

An afternoon spent with words.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. What Barbara Streisand movie did you watch on Netflix? If I haven’t seen it, I’d probably enjoy it too.
    Your musings are calming as well as inspirational. Thank you, Linda.
