Today Nikki Laven has invited me to share a post on her blog, simplystriving. Come on over and read with us. You’ll find me writing on a completely different topic, my faith. With faith comprising a large party of my life story, it feels quite natural to me. I’d love to know what you think.

Thirsty, parched, dry, dehydrated. Even the words make you long for something cool to drink, don’t they?
A hot day in summer working outside and the throat is so needy for some liquid refreshment. Something to trickle back on the tongue, down the throat and cool as it goes.
But the throat on a hot summer day isn’t the only part of me that grows thirsty.
Sometimes my heart and yes, my spirit, feel thirsty, parched, dehydrated.
Why you may ask, and the reasons are many.
Busy, too busy to soak up His Word waiting to be read in my Bible or daily devotional.
Busy, too busy to soak up His Word whispered in my ear.
Why so busy?
So honored and thrilled to have you sharing your heart so raw in my place, Sherrey. What glory….such grace…Thank you…
Aww, Nikki, I’m the one honored and thrilled to be able to share His Word and my feelings with your readers. Thank you!
Busy – that word! It’s an excuse, I think, for so many people – and I’ve come to think it’s an excuse for people who feel bad doing what’s good for them. I had a friend over yesterday and I asked her to join my morning yoga practice. She said that she’d never have time to do it every day like I did, and I thoughts that those who don’t have time to stop are the ones most in need of stillness.
Indeed, it is the stillness and the quiet that is needed, isn’t it? I hope your friend can see the benefits of that stillness and learn from you. 🙂
