Why I Muse

   Fields, I love them. The open spaces allow for undeterred, rushing winds. The winds remind me of the power of God, and the presence of the Holy Spirit swirling all around us. I love the vast emptiness that fields provide, yet somehow, I never feel alone.

Excuse me, I’m rambling again. I do that a lot here.

My name means “Listener”. It took me years to realize that a Listener needs to stop talking to be able to hear.

I am a Follower of Jesus. I sometimes forget that I need to “come away into a desert place”, because God often speaks to us through a still, small voice. (If we give Him our attention, He will have no need to shout.)

I am a Writer. It took me years to realize that a Writer needs solitude and stillness to be able to pen the God-given words for which she prays.

Jesus calls us to quiet resting places, to peace, to stillness. The rush of life can sweep us up in a tornado of cares and stress, so much that we forget to even listen for the voice of God. I invite you to be still with me a while. Let’s consider the things of God together. Let’s rest on that grassy hill and leave the world at our backs for a time. From this solitary place, we will look for the beautiful ordinary. We will listen. We will enter into a place of holy refreshment with our most faithful Companion.

Come, into the fields…
