The silence of snow. It was a Thursday. The loud part of the storm had already come and the gentle part still remained. The snow started to fall, and the flakes got larger and more robust. I dressed for the occasion, and went for a walk. There is a silence in the snow. A silence like no other. The world has slowed down, and what sound is left, is absorbed by the white frozen water. In this silence you can hear God. You can so easily… just be. The beauty is overwhelming, but when you add the contemplative silence, a rush of emotion floods your soul. The thought of sitting in silence, with Christ, enters my mind. “Be still and know that I am God”. Maybe when we sit with our Savior, more is said in our silence than in our words. Our mind has time to relax, and our heart has time to fully love. It is hard to find that silence in most days. However, the rewards it brings are worth looking for it. Most times I find it in the early morning. Sometimes I find it with my animals. Other times it shows up when I least expect it. Sometimes even in a crowd of people, silence comes, and God is present. One thing is for sure. No matter when, or how the silence happens, I always find God there. Nothing is said. I simply listen and so does he. BE STILL AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD!
