These days, our daily lives are very hectic. As technology progresses, people are more plugged in than ever before. So much so, that often we forget to just unplug and be silent.
Take time each day, even if it is just for five minutes, to sit quietly and observe. Let every thought leave your mind and release the stress from your body. Just breath, and take joy in the stillness and the beauty that surrounds you. Watch a sunrise, or sunset, better yet do both when you can.
I love the quiet of the morning, when no one is awake and the birds are just rising and starting their song to welcome the day. Everything is still and quiet; peaceful beyond measure, beyond words. This brings joy to my heart. Try it, you might find the same.
Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
