I’m so thankful I can incorporate my one word, thankful, into my favorite Friday activity – Five Minute Friday, which I confess takes longer than five minutes for me to compose because I’m a
deep slow thinker, but only takes five minutes to read. That counts, right? This week, the word is dwell.
Life is beautiful. Isn’t it? Or is it? Most days, I long for a simple life. One where there isn’t any noise. I try to imagine the world before the industrial revolution. Before cars and TVs and phones and computers and radios.
I love silence. But it’s so hard to find. You actually have to go look for silence these days. Especially if you are a city mouse like me. I do my best to create silent places. To dwell. It’s a little bit easier to find silence here in Arizona. Just outside the city. Along beautiful mountain trails. Until I arrive in the perfect place.
“One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire in his temple.”
Psalm 27:4 ESV
