Silence

Paul and Nancy LeeToday’s Word: ‘silence’ as in… that moment in the conversation between you and your friend when their last verbal thought is spoken and you respond.

It seems to me that the wider that silence is – when we refrain from launching our own thoughts which so easily pour out before others have even had a chance to finish their thoughts – the more room there is for deeper thought, kinder reflection, stronger relationship, more thriving life.

Perhaps that’s why the wisdom from the Christian Scriptures is still helpful today:

Try some silence today; listen deeply, listen respectfully, listen carefully. We may be surprised at what we hear.
