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.
What have you noticed in the silence today? Have you had a moment to breathe? To savor God’s presence? To observe all that is good? To notice a difference in perspective on a situation? To make a decision? To learn a little deeper understanding?
Yesterday, my sister (Cream Puff) and I were horsing around and she threw a plastic bottle at my head! It was pretty funny and I must admit that I started it all. But her reciprocating was drilling my head resulting in a goose egg! A nice tender spot. Also this night did not end with this madness but, as soon as my other sister (Jamocha Shake) got home with her boyfriend (The Ox). They were just sitting and talking on her bed and then Cream Puff and I snuck in and attacked.
We were all laying as follows, closest to the wall on right side: Cream Puff, Jamocha Shake, The Ox, and me. I was just on the edge and I hit Jamocha Shake and she didn’t punch hard as much as she fully extended her arm. In return, I lost my balance and fell right off the bed laughing! Of course, Jamocha has the highest bed too. We all were crying we were laughing so hard….The Ox was the only one that asked if I was OK (for the record!)
The next morning, a small bruise appeared on the forehead, a hurting hip, and a butt that felt bruised. Oh but it was a great laugh! 🙂 Never a dull moment with family!
OH and Nomad is going to be an uncle! How awesome is that??? YAY!
