But I am learning this lesson slowly. I am learning of the benefits of not turning on my car radio, leaving itunes shut down, not having the ipod headphones and not turning on the tv when I am home.
In those moments I discover the gift of silence. The gift of having space to think through what is going on in my head, discern the ideas that are swirling, and consider the other parts of life that are so important.
I am hoping you can find the gift of silence during the hustle and bustle of this Christmas season.
