Friday - Sunshine and Quiet

I write
by lamplight and candles lit by my living room icons.
The doctor thinks I have some sort of flu.
One thing at a time.
One of the good things of sickness is when it quiets you.
At least for myself when I don't feel well physically
suddenly I realize that all those things
I was worried about
don't really matter too much
and that God is here and it is He that is in control,
not myself.
Now I do hope I will be well again soon and that when I am
I can somehow by God's grace
maintain some of this quiet...

We made red lentil vegetable stew with your soup recipe (no slow-cooker) and I am praying your flu isn't bad or long.
