All mornings are beautiful when you wake up with a clear conscious, count your blessings and focus on God. (In fact, you sleep better when those things are true of uour night too. Come to think of it, days are better if that is also true of tour day. Lol) But this morning was particularly beautiful. The sun was just as bright but hidden a tad behind a thin veil of clouds. There was a refreshing breeze that tickled my hair to fly around a bit. The birds were singing their morning praise and breakfast songs. Walking was sweet in conversation with the Lord, like walking with my best friend and Savior. I realized something exquisite, a new truth I had never fully embraced and indeed embraced it (sorry, that is between my Lord and I). And the walk was refreshing in every way. Getting back to the house, everyone was still asleep so I sat and rested on the porch swing, enjoying the mockingbird in our bistro vines searching out their breakfast. God is peace and joy. And if you walk with Him, you are too. I am ready for the day. I love you. Have a beautiful day! ❤
Quiet is rare now. It can rarely be heard over the distractions and chaotic noise. It is hard to hear quiet. But I noticed something. Even now, when the world is so loud, if I stop everything and just listen, I can hear the very small hum of a dragonfly’s wings as it changes directions. The world is still making noise but I noticed that if I don’t make noise or do anything but focus, I can hear it. And I don’t think it is a coincidence that God speaks to us in a still, small voice. He wants us to stop what we are doing and be quiet and focus on Him to speak. It lends itself to the humble prayer heart that can hear God’s whisper in a thunderstorm or battlefield. God speaks softly so we know it is Him. He is far too important and great to have to yell or compete with noise. But when we focus and quiet ourselves and listen, He is honored and reveals His message to the humble listener. How beautiful a picture that is! How magnificent is our God!
