Solitude...A Rare Commodity

I just came in from cutting our lawn because I needed a break. It gets noisy riding the ol' John Deere for several hours. This placid photo from Debra's web site made me think of how much I love and need times of solitude. The older I get the busier I seem to get and I need to slow down. I can just imagine sitting by this quiet lake and listening to the loons calling as the sun disappears on the western horizon. Nice thoughts but I better finish the lawn. Hope you make some time for solitude in your busy life. Don't get trapped, like I have so often, by the Tyranny of the Urgent.


Thanks, Debra, for the photo...and for your stories!

  1. Good morning David...I just wanted to wish you a beautiful day in Jesus and may it be filled with many quiet moments of solitude and peace.

  2. David,

    I think I need to get a bigger lawn!
