…I woke up early this morning. It was a little after 3:00 am. I tried, to go back to sleep, and nothing felt right, and i wondered if someone was dying, or if something big and terrible was happening, because i was just wide awake. And there just has to be a reason, right? Well, anyway i eventually decided to get up. I knew that my husband and eldest daughter would be up at 4:00 am. to catch a flight to New York. So in the meantime i went to the living room for awhile. There was a nice fuzzy blanket next to the couch, and i gathered it up and wrapped it around myself, to go outside on the porch. We have a couple hammock chairs hanging there, and i found one to be a comfortable place to snuggle up and gently swing. As i swung i looked out at the darkness, with just enough light to see shapes of things and no colour. Just different shades of grey. The moon, that was shining in my eyes when i first went to bed, was now gone from sight. The stars were shining white in the clear dark sky. And there was no hint of a breeze, but, there was still a crisp coolness on my face. The air was clean and fresh to breath. There was little sound. Just a few cars on the road a couple miles away.
…Sometimes He just calls us out, to be quiet together.
