Our Trip to White Sands National Monument

White Sands National Monument, in New Mexico, was simply AMAZING. My family and I have been wanting to visit it every since we moved to El Paso.

Be Still

Sometimes we forget to “Be still.” Sometimes we forget that HE is there. He is always reaching for us. He loves us in His entirety. Let us BE STILL and wait. In time He will reveal what is pure, what is great, and what is perfect for us.

I chose a place
That was quiet
And sat therein.
I called to myself
The things hoped for

Waited while they
Materialized.

Reaching for me.
He reminds me
It is okay to wait.
Be still
In this quiet
And wait.

With great expression he said, “If I had all the beer in the world, I’d take it and throw it into the river!”

The congregation nodded their approval.

With even greater emphasis he added, “And if I had all the wine in the world I’d take it and throw it into the river, too!”

The people clapped and were saying “Amen”.

And then finally, he…
