Silence is a great Teacher! 

What does it teach? 

In no particular order, here are some things it has taught me:)

  • Patience 
  • Confidence 
  • Joy is within. 
  • Joy is a gift from God. 
  • Joy is eternal. 
  • Relationships and connection are what is important. 
  • Happiness is temporary. 
  • Happiness is external. 
  • I need to be more patient!
  • Compassion 
  • Empathy 
  • When to take action and when to wait (not always easy)
  • When to be silent and when to speak
  • Sometimes silence is the best action. 
  • Wisdom resides in silence. 
  • Inner peace is possible despite outer chaos. 
  • God is in both the noise and silence. 
  • Sometimes I just need to held by the silence. 
  • God loves me. 
  • My actions are birthed in Silence. 
  • In silence I connect to my true self: the person God wants be to continue to become. 
  • I sit in silence with God and walk with God in life.

Just jotting down some inner reflection:)
