(a thought I wrote down last year about this time...)
I can hear the storm blowing in.
It does not take me by surprise
The rustle of dry leaves
That soon it will be here
One of the many virtues of Silence
I am ready for the storm
Solitude and Silence are close to God's heart. They draw me close to Him and allow space in my mind and heart for Him to draw close to me. Life without these close friends is no life at all.
