Relaxing by the swimming pool with my wife, a walk at the park with my camera, working on my artwork, sitting in my favorite seat reading with my dogs by my side, and taking a small break to say a prayer during the day are all quiet moments that I cherish in my life. They help me stay centered and bring peace into my often hectic life. As is found in Psalm 23:2-3, during these moments, "He leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul." It is during quietness that my strength, physical and spiritual, are regenerated. Even if I'm not in prayer, I know that the Lord is present in my moments of quietness, so I find comfort, peace and love as well. These quiet restorative moments aren't always easy to attain, especially when my hectic life is in extreme mode, and I'm too stressed and tired to focus. This is when I just have to "fake it until I make it," and believe me, it works!
