WHISPERS

Just listen to the whispers in the quiet
of the dawn . . .
A thousand little muffled sounds along
the winds are born. . .
The gentle rustling of a tree, the
trembling leaves that sigh. . .
The reed that bends and quivers when
the breeze goes laughing by . . .
And in the silence of the hour when
twilight shadows fall. . .
when sunset spreads its golden cloak
of raidance over all.

The air is full of whispers, little
voices scarcely heard . . .
The tinkling of the elfin bells, the
calling of a bird . . .
And in the silence of the soul when
we are all alone. . .
God speaks to us in whispers, in a
language of His own . . .
Above the loud confusion of the mind
and of the will . . .
A gentle voice breathes through the
heart and whispers . . .
"Peace . . . be still."

  19. Some times God speaks pretty loud to me, lol...but I can be pretty hard of hearing!
    I have a little plaque in my room that says 'Peace ~ be still'. When I feel like yelling, I often close my door and this is one of my plaques I focus on. This one and one that says 'Simplicity'.

    This was beautiful, you've got so much insight.

  20. There is so much beauty and depth in these words. The words reach down into my heart. I really like the way you speak of the loud confusion of the mind and the will. It is like you pose a question and then give the answer.

    I guess we do think a lot alike then...as, all the beauty around me always reminds me of God!
    I aways hear the quiet whispers of God in my heart!

    I am doing ok....life is beautiful!
    Hard times do not last too long for me...as long as I realize how very blessed I truly am!

    You cried for my momma and your momma.
    That is so touching Keshi!
    You have a gentle soul!

    I know just what you mean about God speaking pretty loud to you and being loud of hearing!
    Me too!
    But, when I truly listen to Him I know so much peace!
    Thanks for your lovely comment!
    I don't know about having so much insight though...Once in a little while, I might have enough to make me just be peaceful!
    Being peaceful is so wonderful!
    Take care Kathi!
