“There’s a place of quiet stillness ‘tween the light and shadows reach
Where the hurting and the hopeless seek everlasting peace
Words of men and songs of angels whisper comfort bittersweet
Mending grief and life eternal where joy and sorrow meet”
Quiet stillness….that is what I feel today. It is what I felt for most of the weekend. I’m not quite sure how it happened, but I am thankful. Somehow in the quiet solitude of the middle of the night I just felt….peace. I lost that will to fight against reality, so to speak.
While I tend to be an emotional person, it seems that most of the pivotal times in my life happen without any fanfare at all. No bolts of lightning, no blinding light emerging through the clouds, no shouting from the rooftops. Just a quiet, settled knowing about something.
Quiet stillness. Peace. A forward smile. Truth.
