~Leaning & Lifting~

Psalm 143:8
Cause me to hear Your loving-kindness
 in the morning,
for on You do I lean and in You do I trust.
Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk,
for I lift up my inner self to You (oh Lord).
The Amplified Bible

No editing was done to the picture.
  The photo may not be of the best quality,
being it was captured from my son's cell phone.

 I believe you can capture the
 stillness and beauty
of the moment
if you will allow yourself
to still long enough.

The quiet had to be sensed
along with the fog & mist being felt.
I pray you & I will look for
these "moments" of stillness.
The slower the living, the greater the sense of
fullness and satisfaction.
Ann Voskamp

Beautiful picture...and I too want to learn how to be still...even having a still heart in the middle of activities, the trusting heart that is calm.
