Solitude

I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself,
than be crowded on a velvet cushion.
~Henry David Thoreau~


In quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.
Isaiah 30:11

You are holy; I come in silence.
You are wise, Lord; I come to hear. . .
You are love; I come to draw near.
~Ken Bible~

Hi Glenda, George and I hate crowds.. That's why we love Ocean Isle this time of year. The peacefulness there is incredible

Have a wonderful week.
Hugs,
Betsy

This is the perfect picture to express these lovely thoughts. I like the first and last quotes; had not heard them before.

Love the poetry quote. And of course I ALWAYS love the scripture passages.

My Word of the Year a few years ago was PEACE. You know what I discovered? There is no PEACE apart from His PRESENCE.

I keep coming back and enjoying your quietness ...
