Maintaining the manger attitude

The above is the title of an article I read recently by Marian C. English.  In it she stated “Patience, free from the pressure of stress; contentment, rejoicing in abundance without excess; purity, recognizing and welcoming its own; love, willing to share its radiant warmth unselfishly–these are some of the characteristics of spiritual stillness.”  I found this to be “spot on” and definitely needed this time of the year.  It can be so easy to slip into “overwhelm” if we are not alert!  Colossians 3:23 reads “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men.”

The need to be still at times throughout the day is needed for me to keep my peace and harmony.
