Be Still ...

Dear Nazareth House Friends,
Greetings!  In the last month, Nazareth House Apostolate Blog has been quiet.  We've received many phone calls and emails asking if everything is okay.  We thank you for your love, concern and patience during our brief hiatus.

With all the busy-ness and muchness of the Holiday Season beginning with Thanksgiving, on through the New Year, Nazareth House felt the need to begin 2011 in a time of stillness.  Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God" 

There is that special strength found in the quiet stillness that brings focus like nothing else can. "And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake:And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice."  Kings 19: 11-12

Though silent, we have not been stagnant  - we've a lot to share with you. Check back with us often.
