Friday night, some of my friends wanted to go out to see a movie.
I didn’t want to go.
There was this compelling idea of staying home and being less busy.
Maybe even quiet.
Yesterday and today, there was a nearby nature festival with a lot of photo opportunities and things to learn.
A friend invited me.
I decided not to go.
Instead, I quietly trimmed limbs from the trees in my yard.
Not talking to anyone.
Trying to listen for what God might be telling me.
After church this morning, I looked forward to coming home with more time to be quiet and thoughtful.
Sitting in a chair, writing some things down as I pondered, I saw a butterfly through the window fluttering around a blooming bush outside.
I am thankful for the past two days.
Intentionally slower days.
Decidedly quieter days.
