Where the View Never Changes

Fewer views are as serene as this on an early summer morn. Jehnsen Lake in northern Michigan.

There is something to be said of a view that never changes. The other side of the lake from our family cabin, is wetlands and inhabitable forest, so the view literally never changes. The house is simple and rustic and there is only room enough for the things that matter most. 

Sometimes I think Gods voice gets crowded out of the whirring din of thoughts and ideas inside our minds. It is so necessary to give the spiritual discipline of simplicity a rightful place in our lives. 

 I'm making room to hear his still small voice. To feel the steady rhythm of his unchanging nature.
