Quiet Inspiration

Today I find myself...surrounded by silence.

All I can hear is the gentle purr of the computer

Yet outside my window...
...there must be a symphony playing.
...the birds are dancing
...the trees are swaying to the beat
...even the grass is keeping rhythm.

I often pray that I will hear Your message to me...
...and know the path that you want me to take.

Yet this morning I am reminded that
even when we can't hear...
...there is still a symphony playing
...and we must join in the dance.

"But I believe I shall enjoy the Lord's goodness
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord, take courage;
be stouthearted, wait for the Lord!"
Psalms 27:13-14

Good morning! I'm so pleased to help spread the word about your immensely inspiring blog.

This post is no exception--an excellent reminder that sometimes when we're not hearing any response from's because we're not really listening. :) "..the trees are swaying to the beat...even the grass is keeping rhythm"--beautiful.

What a lovely post. The peace of it is washing over me even now, as I type.

Lauren, my family structure has changed dramatically in the past couple of years. Children left home, as they are meant to. But husband also left. God has promised that He sets the solitary in families. And I have been in awe of HOW He does that. I count my daughter's introducing me to you as one of the ways God is showing me a new sense of family.

Thank you so much for your dear uplifting messages.
