So many thoughts come to mind this morning as I think about the writing prompt – Silence. Not sure where my fingers are going to take me on this one but here goes.
As an introvert sometimes I just need a little bit of silence.
In this crazy, busy hectic world how is silence even possible? Even when it is quiet here at the house I am usually on-line doing my Bible studies or blogging. I think silence comes for me when I turn everything off and open up my Bible. I love going in our back den that looks out over the pool and study in there. I also love going outside and just sitting in silence with nothing – not a book, not the Bible – just me and God, but right now with the mosquito season in full swing I have been avoiding that because they seem to love hovering around the patios.
Sometimes I will lay in the bed in the mornings praying, but some mornings I find myself just laying there enjoying the quietness and the darkness.
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.
Ecclesiastes 3:7-8 (NIV)
