We need to find God, and He cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature–trees, flowers, grass–grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence . . . We need silence to be able to touch souls. ~Mother Teresa
I totally agree!
Silence is key
And it’s a challenge to seek it out and sit in it.
Jeannine (jerseygal) says
Perfect Timing, as always!
Karen Lange says
Yes, too much noise – too distracting! Good reminder, thank you!
I’ve taken to spending most of my day in silence. I might check the news periodically for any big news breaks, but lately I haven’t played much music.
I wonder if this is why I prefer the click of ‘puter keys to talking on the phone.
Scott Couchenour says
I am a big fan of silence. It’s where I get my energy. Some get their energy from noise and interaction. I suppose silence comes more easily for some than for others. Regardless, it’s posts like these that help each of us to keep silence a priority. In that way, you are “spurring others on” as the scripture says. Thanks.
