Sunday Snapshot: Being Still

Lady luck found crawling in my garden.

"When I was a little girl, I used to run around in the fields all day, trying unsuccessfully to catch ladybugs.  Finally I would get tired and lay down for a nap. When I awoke, I’d find ladybugs walking all over me.” - Under the Tuscan Sun

The lesson here? "Be still, and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10. 


We should put our faith in God to make things happen, rather than insisting we can do it without him. This is very hard for some of us, especially in this American culture where fierce independence is esteemed and instant gratification is expected. 


Here's praying that God will help us slow down, take a breath, trust him and we'll wake from a much-needed sleep to find the ladybugs we long for all around.
