Solitude

SOLITUDE

is

Being alone with my thoughts.

Listening for the voice of God.

Experiencing the calm of my soul.

Releasing all responsibilities…

all expectations.

If only for a moment

To be still

To be free

To be….

    That’s my garden time. Alone with God. I get a lot of comfort there.

    • I have found a special closeness to God in nature. I think it is because we are one with His creation – it opens our souls to hear His voice. I wish this was my deck, it is my sisters house a perfect place for a retreat. There is plenty of inspiration there for writing and taking pictures. ~ Patty

  2. Thank you really appreciate this – so easy to forget!

  3. Reblogged this on hungryheart62 and commented:
    NOTE TO SELF: So easy to forget the importance of doing this and yet it is so fundamental, primal and necessary for Life in All its Fullness.

    • I feel honored that you re blogged this, I will be sure to tell my sister. The picture is of her deck and I took it while I was dog sitting for her in the spring. It was the perfect retreat and I was glad I got snowed in and had to stay an extra day! It was there that I felt the solitude I wrote about. It is as important as breathing is… Blessings~ Patty

    I think that its a beautiful setting and looks so very peaceful.

  5. That is so beautiful… And the perfect picture to go with it. You reminded me how important that quiet time is – even whwn we’re alone this modern world with all the gadgets and tv, radio something-or-the-other is drowning out that opportunity to be quiet and, as you say, listen for the voice of God.

    • Thank you, my sister lives in what we call God’s Country around here. It is simply beautiful and very inspiring. It was a perfect retreat and reminded me the importance of that quiet time with God that even Jesus took. Blessings ~ Patty
