Day 243, August 29

"In the hush of quiet moments may God fill your tender soul and with His gentle presence give you peace and make you whole."---Kris Decker

Have you noticed that our world provides few quiet moments?  We seem to be continually bombarded with noise.  Ipads, ipods, and iphones constantly demand our attention.  These things, which a decade or so ago, we didn't know existed insistently command our energies and time.  It's not as though there is anything wrong with such devices.  They allow us to communicate, to learn, to share. 

The danger lies in our willingness, indeed our eagerness, to give them such power over our lives that we have no place where we can be still and feel the Lord's spirit.  Perhaps we need to turn off and tune out, if only for a few minutes, every day.

So, for today, I am grateful for quiet moments.
