Silence (and valuing the little things)

Shhhhhhh. Shhhhhh. Shh. Quiet yet? Man, I am CRAVING some silence right about now. One of the vital things this pandemic has robbed us of is silence. Stuck in a house with your whole family? Good luck finding a quiet place to reflect! But this isn't just a coronavirus issue; silence has been lacking in our lives for years, perhaps even decades.

I've written many times about how silence is where God speaks to us, but we'll get to that aspect later. First, let's touch on how silence finds its way into our lives. Silence's biggest entry points into our lives are the "in-between" moments. Moments like the commute to work, the walk across campus to your next class, the few minutes in the morning while you wait for the coffee to brew.
