We too are called to withdraw at certain intervals into deeper silence and aloneness with God. We cannot find God in noise or agitation. ~Mother Teresa

(A solitary winter walk on the Bluff. I too have had my version of silence this week…technology glitches kept things quiet over here. Turns out the aloneness was a good thing, but I’ll look forward to seeing you for our usual recipes, photos and stories next week.)

    I’ve missed your blog posts and I’m glad the opportunity for solitude came your way. What a blessing. Beautiful photo and great quote. My heart eased as I read it. In all the great hero’s journey myths, the hero always returns with a message of blessing for the community. Welcome back!
