Yes, I am bending the rules a bit and combining two letters for the a to z challenge.
When was the last time you had peace and quiet?
Do you crave it?
It is as rare as hen's teeth?
Is it me or is everywhere extra noisy these days?
The first thing that comes to mind is Movies. Looking at older movies in comparison to current ones, the one thing that I find is that the background music seems to be at the same volume as the dialogue.
Commercials blare their message.
The bass from music inside cars have actually shaken the walls of my home as they drove past us!
Even the kids cartoons have evolved into a 30 minute scream and loud special effects blast.
When was the last time you experience PEACE and QUIET?
Was it at the lake?
Was it in your overstuffed chair reading a book?
Was it while you were quiet in prayer?
Was it while you checked on your baby late at night and could not take your eyes from their beautiful face?
Was it while you cuddled with your sweetheart?
Or a nice walk in the park?
For me it was the other day as My Mom ( walking with her trusty wheeled walker) and I walked in our local park. The only sound heard was the sounds of our steps and the walker wheels. She drank in the sight of the little butterflies that were fluttering around us and commented on how the trees are beginning to bloom.
It reminded me of the times when I was little and she would take me for walks in our local park.
She would slow down so that my little feet could keep up with her strides
Now, I slow down for her.
Peace and Quiet is truly a Blessing.
Here's hoping you have a bit of peace and quiet today.
