Heart of the Woods -Guest Heart Thursday

A sweet young friend of mine sent the following quote by Patience Strong.  This is how I feel about the forest of my childhood.  There are other places which have the same amazing feeling to them.  I wanted to share this quote with you.

 If you stand very still in the heart of the woods 
You will hear many wonderful things
--The snap of a twig and the wind in the trees 
And the whirr of invisible wings. 
If you stand very still in the turmoil of life, 
And wait for the voice from within, 
you will be led down the quiet pathways of wisdom and peace 
In a mad world of chaos and din. 
If you stand very still and hold to your faith 
You will get all the help that you ask. 
You will draw from the silence the things that you need
--Hope and courage and strength for your task.

~ Patience Strong
