“‘Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be faint-hearted.’

“‘In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.’

“Such words reveal to us the close connection between quietness and faith, and show us what a deep need there is of quietness, as an element of true waiting upon God…

“‘It is good that one should quietly wait.’

“How the very thought of God in His majesty and holiness should silence us…

“‘The LORD is in His holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before Him’ (Hab 2:20).'”

  1. Oh so beautiful! A breath of peace the minute I saw the absolutely gorgeous photo… Thank you for sharing these words too…

  2. Thank you, all, for the sweet comments. The afternoon I got to sit gazing at that scene was indeed for me a “breath of peace,” a “peaceful sigh.” So happy to be able to share it. 🙂 God bless your week!
