Being Still..

You know I have been out for surgery and as I get better I'm wanting to do things, Even though the Doctor has told and warned me that is when people really hurt themselves; that they start to feel better and over do it and mess themselves up for life. So... I am trying to BE STILL.. It is very hard for me. That has been my prayer this last year, that I can BE STILL, not only physically but spiritual. I have felt like I have been still spiritually; but really I haven't. LIke the song. Rest my soul, well I really really haven't been resting my soul, until now. You have to rest your mind. I allow it to go 100 miles a second, not slowing down to concentrate on things very long. But then Sometimes, God makes you rest even your kicking and screaming.. He needs me to rest my soul so that I can hear Him.. And REALLY no what my true/His true passion for me is..

That is something I have been really dwelling on this past little while. Which is my true talent passion. As i have laid in bed or on the couch "BEING STILL" reading God's word and praying, I feel it inside of me wanting to burst out... Yes, the devil has tried to put other things to get in the way. But God will make you restless so you will come back and rest in Him and seek His passion for your life. Yes, there are some other things that have to weeded out, but for now I'm learning and listening, preparing for what He is showing me, what He is birthing in me. Being Still in His pressence.

Thank you God for your faithfulness. For putting me a place so that I don't have NO choice to but to BE STILL..

I've been out for surgery for a week and 3 days. I am feeling better. Thank the Lord.. But this morning sitting at my computer, Praising the Lord for a new day of health. And still thinking of what my passions are. I have several you know. Of course, the pillowcase dresses. Taking pictures and doing hair, working with children at my local church. And I know I should just concentrate on one or two things and get really good at it. But trying to decided which is most prize passion, it is so hard. I am weeding things out; but I reckon the time will come and I will know that I know. But for now, I will continue to make the adorable pillowcase dresses and post them on Etsy, take pictures whenever I get a chance, still do hair when I get able and most surely of all continue to work with the children at my church. Here is a few pictures I have taken of some friends of daughters children. One has one of my eyelet pillowcase dresses on.
