I'm Feeling Like the Strong, Silent Type.

Or maybe just the silent type.

I have a few post ideas brewing in my mind (one including an interesting interview), but I haven't been able to actually come here and post. Not because my uber busy social life prevented it, but because I am feeling...quiet. This usually doesn't happen to me (hush now), but every so often I find myself overwhelmed with the need to be quiet. My poor husband sometimes interprets this as seething anger (with some hostile retaliation forthcoming), but that isn't it. I'm not sad, depressed, angry, or bored. I am just quiet. It tends to unnerve people who haven't been though one of my "quiet times" with me yet.

For whatever reason, I am in one of my quiet places. I just want to be pensive and still and watchful. I'm generally a pretty verbally active gal, but right now all I want is to cuddle up with Cal and a picture book, or plan my spring flower garden, or sit on the front porch and enjoy the wind. As much as I love blogging, even this post feels too forced and too draining for where I am at.

But take heart - my quiet times never last too long. And like I said, I have some things I will want to talk about...once I am done being quiet.

These times can be very fulfilling...take the time you need. I'll still be here...

Be still and know...there is definately not enough of that in my life. Those are often the times that God speaks to me most, when I shut up.

I have a strong feeling this is the quiet before the storm...
