Have you ever noticed how loud the silence is? Or how light the dark really is? Have you ever really sat back and taken notice of everything that is going on around you, sort of beccome a spectator to your life? An interesting comment, I admit, but think about it for just a mere moment and let it settle into your thought pattern. When was the last time you actually sat somewhere and really observed what was going on around you?
I remember when my kids were little we would go for walks and I would point out the ants that were walking on the ground and we would see if we could find any other living creatures around us. Sometimes it is very hard to stop and smell the roses as it were -- just slow down and realize how precious the moments we actually have are -- because in the blink of an eye, or a flick of a finger, everything could be gone.
So as you read this, stop, for just a moment, and listen to the silence around you -- you might just be surprised at how loud it is.
