Tonight my friends told me that I could say I was too focused on resting to post.

I thought that was kind of lazy.

This morning as I was sitting quietly listening to the silence in the house, I realized that even when I am silent and contemplative, the neighborhood is abuzz with noisy gratitude.

Birds chirped happily out side the window. Dogs barked frantically at the thought of greeting a newcomer. Lawnmowers whirred to clip the grass. The motorcycle mechanic behind us dropped a wrench.

The sounds of Sunday rest were all around me in the silence. ❤
