November Gratitude–Still Water

I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
Wendell Berry

Stillness is rare these days.  To find it, I have to reach deep inside.   I don’t make the effort often enough.  Today I will try, if even for a minute, to be still, resting in grace and finding that moment of freedom.
