“Silence is the sleep that nourishes wisdom.”
~ Francis Bacon
This moment–when all is quiet but for the soft snoring of my Yorkie; when the cool summer morning air gently caresses my skin; when the dawn has not yet broken and the day stretches out in front, ripe with possibility; when I look outside at the majesty of creation and am moved to praise the Creator–this moment is the one in which I am most fully alive.
Today. Worship and teaching. Carving out moments for creativity. Pursuing silence and solitude.
