Project 52: Be Still

09 Mar

It has been a very rough week for me emotionally.  This photo challenge was a real challenge trying to figure how I was going to interpret “Be Still.”  It was especially hard having Psalm 46:10 in my head every time I was thinking about it.  Be still and know that I am God. It wasn’t just the association with the name of the challenge, but a reminder in the midst of this emotional turmoil that I am not the one in total control.  That I can only control what is in my power to control and I must let the rest go and let God.

In the end, this is what I chose.  This is the view from our apartment’s back patio.  This is where I like to spend time in warmer months reading, writing, listening to music, and just being.  During the warmer months, that whole area is full of the kids in our complex playing from the time they get home from school until dinner.  It makes me smile to see them outside playing rather than being inside in front of a computer or the TV.  I accept and love all the noise they make knowing that. The feral cats that live around our building spend a lot of time down there, too.  It’s a peaceful place that I call “my thotful spot.”  Yes, Winnie the Pooh still has relevance in my adulthood.
