The sun had been up for a few minutes, the water was flat, and the mist sat on top of the water. I wanted to be alone.
A few minutes to be alone in the morning before everyone woke up. Time to think and time to pray.
I don’t want to be with people all day. Talking, smiling, eating, living, walking, time to think,early in the morning.
The sun rose and the winds picked up, boats came on the lake and the water was not flat anymore, I couldn’t see the clouds in the water.
Going for a walk, alone.
Feeling lonely in the midst of people. Alone in a crowd.
Standing in the middle of the road. Looking up.
I am not alone.
Jesus knows we must come apart and rest awhile, or else we may just plain come apart.
Vance Havner (1901-1986)
