In Question

depressing posts call for happy pictures.


There are so many things I should be doing right now.

From the needs to the wants to the somedays to the right nows.

I am tired. I am without. I am really, really sad.

And so I wonder if it is sometimes alright to be still. And in the stillness, I wonder if my “sometimes” is turning into “too many times”.

I don’t have the answer. I hope it is enough, for right now, to have the question.

  1. “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven…A time to heal..A time to weep, and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.”

    Be still. For this time, it is enough.

  2. Meg- These words have helped me through some very difficult days. I find them grounding. Maybe they will help you too. <3

    "Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign tongue. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

  3. I have had a bout of hard days & weeks the past while. I’m a happy, go-lucky person, so for me, I feel it is especially acute when things are blue.
