Silence

Flames dance freely in the fire place in front of me. Their silent movement reflecting the silence of this blog over the last few months. Indeed I have remained silent... There has been much to think about, much to contemplate, much to throw me on my knees over and over again. And yet I find joy because I know that it is the quiet stillness, the pause of silence just before and just after, that frames the hallelujah chorus in all its glory.

I have seen God's hand move in ways I could not have imagined and I sit in wonder at His grace. I am overwhelmed by His goodness, His leading, and His guiding.

And I am more convinced than ever that there is no more powerful thing in the universe than an encouraging word, a smile, and a heart of selfless love.

  1. The "frame of silence" totally just took me back to Mr. Sarr's small choir..
    "I am more convinced than ever that there is no more powerful thing in the universe than an encouraging word, a smile, and a heart of selfless love."
    So very true and profound..
    Thank you for sharing, Paul.
