"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain."
~Psalm 127:1

the sound of silence

Lately, I've been enjoying the sound of silence.

It doesn't all sound or feel the same.  There is the silence of sitting in a dimly lit room on a cold night watching cars drive past.  There is the silence of standing in the falling snow.  There's the silence of painting the walls of a room.  The silence of the sunrise and sunset.  The silence in the barn (when the fans aren't on).

Sometimes, I drown myself in noise.  With my iPod plugged into my ears as I work at the barn or the radio blasting in the car.  Or even just my thoughts running wildly around in my head.

Sometimes it's just nice to enjoy some silence, be able to hear when God is speaking...
