For God alone my soul waits in silence and quietly submits to Him,

for my hope is from Him.

He only is my rock and my salvation; my fortress and my defense, 

I will not be shaken or discouraged.

—Psalm 62:5–6 AMP


Herons are the poster children for quietly waiting in silence. For several years, we lived on the edge of a lake in Michigan. I could sit on the deck for hours and watch the wildlife. Herons fascinated me the most—how they can stand motionless for the longest time, assessing their habitat, alertly waiting and searching for sustenance. At the same time, they trust and hope that they will be fed. Lesson learned.
