Today’s theme for 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes is SILENCE.
“Silence is golden”. How often have you heard those words.I know I need times of silence – especially after a long stressful day of teaching or after a day filled with huge crowds of people. Whether I curled up with a book and a cup of tea or soaked in a tub of hot water and epsom salts, silence has helped me to recharge, to get back a sense of peace.
Standing on the shore of a lake or ocean, watching the waves or sitting in church during silent prayer also have the same effect.
Going deep inside – not even music to break the silence – is soul restoration. Silence surrounds us like a warm blanket and soothes.
