taste and see…

Savoring the moment… relishing the quiet… tasting the peace and joy in the journey on this Multitude Monday morning. 


I’m learning that quiet is fulfilling and slow tastes good… and that rest is more than sleep and much more delicious.

There was a time, in the not so distant past, when I thought rest was for the lazy and quiet was for the weak.  I was so caught up in my own noise, my heart could not hear my Father’s voice and my soul could not feel the Spirit’s whisper.  

In that time, not so long ago, I only tasted food… only found pleasure in what my taste buds encountered.  I didn’t know that other things had a flavor and that things of the heart are much more delectable than things of the mouth.

taste and see that the LORD is good
blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him
Psalm 34:8

My list of 1000 Gifts grows exponentially…

#1348 – #1367

… learning to savor a moment
… tulips still in bloom 9 days later
… giving homemade maple syrup to a friend
… warm days and cold nights

… learning to quiet my soul
… friends’ encouraging words
… seeing a friend Friday night for the first time in 12 years
… robins on my lawn

… learning that rest more than sleep 
… a delectable Monday start to the week
… a soul that finds quietness and trust
… knowing I can find none of that without Him

… sap, sap and more maple sap
… looking forward to pancakes with my nephew who loves maple syrup
… knowing my family is coming in less than 2 weeks
… a God who creates cousin time

… the thrill of serving a God who is never still
… anticipating His good work in me
… knowing He will never leave nor forsake
… finding Him to be my all in all

  1. Beautiful once again, Heidi. Oh, blessed quietness…stillness for my soul. It's so true that only in solitude can we see and hear things we were blind to before.

  2. Robins on your lawn!!!! They were here all winter,and I miss their noisy, happy ways! I know it's spring when the Robins are gone — for you, it is when they arrive back home. Loved your list today, and your comments! Thank you for posting!

I'd love to know what you think...
