Saturday's Saying...........

"Tranquility"

Some of you that have been around for a very long time, know that I also have a full time job.  I work with children.  A lot of these children come from very disturbing situations.  My heart is broken at least a couple times a day.  But I couldn't imagine doing anything else.
And at the end of the day.....I just need to shut down and shut out.  I don't want to have the phone ring or even hear another's voice.  I need to be "free from disturbances".  My mind needs to rewind and reset.  And I usually do this by maintaining perfect silence, and art.
Everyone is hit every day by lots of "disturbances".  We all need to rewind and reset.  It took me a long time to accept that...that I couldn't just keep going and going and going.  I needed to just STOP.  Be Still. and Reset.  Breathe deep and clear your mind.  Interestingly enough, if I am creating, I am not thinking about anything but the creation.

Try it....if even for a half hour.  Take time to be free from "disturbances" and Reset.

Thank you so much! Creating allows me to escape from things too. Meditation is also good.

Bless you for working with and helping these children. I can imagine it is a very draining and demanding job, and everyone who works with children who are disadvantaged in some way deserves a special place in our Lord's kingdom. You have my sincere admiration.

Thanks, Paulette! I like some quiet time myself--vital to my sanity, too!

Thank you for this word art, Paulette, and for sharing your thoughts behind it. You are a marvel for all you do, I'm glad that your art brings you some peace. Me, I tend to stress too much about how my card will look at the end rather than just going with the flow. :)
