It’s amazing how restorative quietness can be. We’re experiencing new levels of this in our new apartment here in Orlando. I forgot how healing to the mind and spirit peace and quiet can be. My thoughts are more free flowing, and contemplative. There are fewer distractions to disrupt a train of thought.
And now that we’re back I’m finding that we have so much more time on our hands than what we’re used to. This is a fresh start for us. So far we have no obligations, no appointments, no schedule. Think about it. How many times in life do you get to be anonymous? This is a special time that God has given us. I know it doesn’t last long. But for now I want to treat this time as a gift. God knows we’ve been in need of it for a while.
I hope that the peace and quiet of our time here will be restorative to our mind and soul. And we’ll learn how to connect better as a family and connect better with God.
“Lord, fill our time with good things. Fill our time with peace, rest and comfort. May we be restored in You and through You. Be near, oh God. Amen.”
“But as for me, the nearness of God is my good. I have made the Lord GOD my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works.” -Psalm 73:28
