When Silence Is Golden

Yet another moment of unusual note.

I'm an extrovert.

I become energized by hanging out with people, laughing, chatting, you name it. I've been surrounded by people for days.

Today, however, I am thrilled to be all. by. myself.

In the silence of my own thinking.
In the presence of my littlest boy, who does not talk back, nor demand unreasonable demands upon me.
Comfortable in my own skin, and wildly willing to do nothing.
Except bask.
And renew.

[Jesus] saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. Matthew 26:36

I'm glad you had sometime to renew. Sounds like you needed it after the previous "events" of your weekend. I pray that the rest of your weekend is uneventful compared to how it started.

:) Thank you, Monica . . .I trust it will. I'm generally a quick bounce-back kinda gal! :)

The mind and body need to rest, this is why we are commanded to rest on the seventh day, God knows us better than we do.

Amen to that, Jeff . . .
