December 13th - grateful for ...


{ Sunday afternoon stillness }

( under the blanket you see is my baby who's napping)



God's poet is silence! His song is unspoken,
And yet so profound, so loud, and so far,
It fills you, it thrills you with measures unbroken,
And as soft, and as fair, and as far as a star.


~Joaquin Miller

I agree with Joy who has said it so well! It is indeed true that we need to listen to the silence if we are to know God especially at this busy noisy time of year.

Sitting in absolute silence is a blessing and so hard to do.

That is a lovely poem. I often like to have a quiet day in my room.

The perfect picture for the season. We had an afternoon quite like that yesterday too and I am loving a candle alight all day around here too.
