Linda's Blue Swallowtail. I took this photo in my wife's garden a few years ago.
Linda (my wife) has moved to a different room, and they didn't do any of the scheduled testing yesterday - the thinking, now, is that she had a heart attack and then the fall; we do not know that for a fact. I'll visit her later this morning.
Restlessness is born of frustration. Perhaps we want to move ahead with our lives more quickly. Does a job have us trapped? Do past troubles haunt us still? Maybe perfectionism tarnishes every attempt to achieve. We can learn from our restlessness, if we let it guide us to our inner reservoir of peace and spiritual support.
The search for serenity often takes us farther from it. We mistakenly think a different job or home or relationship will answer all our needs. But we find that our restlessness has accompanied us to our new surroundings. Peace has its home within. And prayer opens the door to it. In the stillness of our patience, we are privy to its blessing.
