The Beauty of Silence.

All I can hear around me is silence, well and my air purifier and a snow blower outside, but that is besides the point haha.  I've been very moved lately by the beauty of silence.  I sometimes just stay awake at night and listen to well, nothing.  But it's the most beautiful sound that God created.  Life has gotten so busy for everyone lately, including me.  From working, to being with friends, to being on facebook, to the never ending texts and calls to stay in contact with people I sometimes get lost in myself and as I like to put it, "run around with my head chopped off."  Recently I had all four of my wisdom teeth out (the picture is me with ice wrapped around my cheeks) and my oh my it was not enjoyable by any means.  But I spent four days at home keeping myself busy doing.....nothing. But it was the best way to use my time.  I spent time laying in bed, reading the Bible, doing my treatments and most of all just spending time with myself and God.  These past few years have been so hectic in my life as I have been transitioning to college and working with my Diabetes that in a way I lost myself in it all.  The four days I was home I was able to in a way "introduce" myself to me again.  I contemplated the things I love to do that I have not done for many years, for example play my violin.  God created us for His being and when we lose sight of His plan for our lives and lose sight of who we are that He created us to be, we need to step back and listen to the beauty of silence. 
As 2010 is coming right around the corner, I challenge you to get familiar with yourself again, and the plans God has for you.  Let the world go for a day and just be with yourself.  God has blessed you so you can be a blessing,  take advantage of that. :)
