In our busy lives, we often forget to take some quiet time for ourselves. By the way, sleeping does not count.
I love this quote because it speaks to me. Each time I have partaken in a quiet leisure activity, even if it is just sitting and contemplating in a natural setting, creative energy flows through me in the form of thinking of ideas for my blog, recalling a long-lost song, or remembering a scent that brings to mind a distant memory. Some of this quiet time is spent in the Word of God, reading, or simply refreshing my mind.
If we were having coffee, you and I would sit quietly outside, enjoying our beverage. No words would be needed because we are languishing in our contemplation in companionable silence.
