As I watched the deep pinks pale into pastels as the light grew, it occurred to me that I loved the "just before" colors better: just before daylight - just before dark, too.
My soul responds to the "between" times - between daylight and dark (whether daybreak or day's end), between calm and storm, between this task and that.
The respite from one thing and the anticipation of the next plays into this, certainly. But I truly do appreciate these between times on their own merit. Something to do with the stillness, no doubt.
"Be still" is a phrase that always stirs a profound response in my heart and soul. It is in stillness that angels speak, that muses sing, that insights and inspiration come. It is in stillness that hearts are filled and souls fed. Amen and amen...
