Quiet

Quiet. Deliciously, wonderfully quiet. The background sounds of life outside the house, the occasional hum of the refrigerator and the clicking on the keyboard are all I hear. Ah, so nice; so rare.

There was a time in my life when quiet was unbearable. Then, I needed the sound of the television or radio to drown out my thoughts. Now, I have taken my thoughts captive – for the most part – and revel in the peace of this dawning day.

In quiet, I will leave my computer and commune with God as I study His Word.

In quiet, I face the nights waiting for blessed sleep.

In quiet, God works His wonders if I only let Him.

Shhh….

What makes you peaceful?

  1. I love hearing the rain falling outside, or the sound of the dryer tumbling with the promise of warm clothes or towels to come. On the nights that my son is with his dad, however, I have found that playing his bedtime music even though he isn’t there is comforting to me!
