It is only when we silent the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts. ~K.T. Jong
In honor of the new Fall season arriving,
my birthday coming up this week,
and the Jewish New Year (Yom Kippur falls on my birthday this year)….
Because I feel the need for some silence and to commune with nature and God for awhile…
I’ve decided to take a break.
No Warm Milk Journal posts,
No electronic journaling (only old fashioned pen and paper)!
For one week I am unplugging.
I wish you all a blessed week. I will come back next Sunday, September 30, 2012.
For now,I’m off to the beach (and I’m not taking my iPhone with me)!
Inside myself is a place where I live all alone, and that’s where I renew my springs that never dry up. ~Pearl Buck
I receive with open arms all the love that God, my friends, family, and life has to offer.
I’ve been giving all day and now it is time to just be.
Thank you for this time to enjoy a quiet space of solitude.
It’s time is brief I know but I need it so.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Being silent at times is very good for us. It calms our nervous systems down. Calms the mind. Soothes the soul. Helps us to connect to our higher power. After a busy day with my second graders I really need that time. If I get it, I sleep much better at night.
How can we fit in times to be silent and be still in our busy lives? Here are a few suggestions:
When you do emerge from your time of silence you will be much more refreshed and have more to give. You will be more centered and will sleep better at night.
