A handful of quietness

"Better is a handful of quietness 
than two hands full of toil and a striving after wind."  
Eccl. 4:6

A handful of quietness.  As I read that this morning it made m pause to visualize what that would look like.  The images of the contrast are pretty clear.  To have a little quietness is better than a bunch of stuff to do that accomplishes nothing.

A handful of quietness.

I'm not sure what to do with that exactly, but I will be thinking about it and looking for ways to get my handful of quietness.

I have no brilliant thoughts for this verse...just a thoughtful pause.  

Lord, help me to find just one handful of quietness rather than two hands full of busy.  It seems to be a better choice.
