Can you hear me now?
It's so hard with our busy lives, and our families, and our jobs, to find a time and place for solitude and silence. Noise, commotion everywhere. Always something needs to be done, or someone needs something. I keep saying I'm gonna make time, I'm gonna find time. And yet, tonight, when no one was home but me and the puppies I still couldn't manage it. I made phone calls, watched TV - tho nothing was on I really wanted to see, and even found myself listening to music and falling asleep. So much for discipline.....it's hard to be still. It's hard to set aside worries and problems and listen for the still, small voice. It's much easier to escape into a flurry of busy-ness, noise, and mind numbing "entertainment."
