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


Happy Friday!

  1. Good honest post Micey.
    This feeling so overwhelmed by the noise is a theme I keep reading and hearing all over the place.
    To dwell, is to be in His Presence. This I know.

  2. I liked this a lot. I liked the idea that dwelling in a place is a lot more than just being there. Looking for places to dwell in my own life. So glad that Arizona is speaking to your soul!


  3. ditto on loving silence. I think the more God heals and restores the inner broken places of my heart the more I love silence. When I was younger, I preferred having music on…something with a beat. (I think it was to block out the chatter in my head).
