PostSubject: THE SOUND OF SILENCE   Wed Aug 19, 2015 3:12 pm

Habakkuk 2:20

Silence is NOT
  the absence of sound,
but the absence
of the sound of man.
The noises of nature
are compatible with silence
as God's Presence
 fills the land.

Silence can embrace
the sound of the wind,
a thunderstorm
or just a slight breeze.
Silence can be full
of the murmuring
 of mountains,
and the rustle of dancing leaves.

Silence is not affected
by the twittering of birds
And their beautiful,
throbbing songs.
 Nor does it resent
the chattering of squirrels
and the crickets
who sing along

The sound of the gull
or albatross

and other winged
creatures that soar,
no more disturb
the restful silence
then the wave
that meets the shore.

Decaying limbs
that fall to the ground
to nourish
the forest floor,
do not disturb
 the silence of the earth
but replenish
nature’s store.

Silence is golden
and merits great esteem,
as Moses’ staff
and Aaron’s rod;
for in this silence
the soul of man
communes with
The Heart of God.

If you only knew how long it took to learn this and how painfully trial and errored worthwhile it was!
I highly recommend this book to you:
Very in keeping with these thoughts and an edifying read:)
