Silence Found, Peace Restored

It is in the quiet that we often hear the most.  Where God's sweet, soft voice fills our hearts and our ears.  It was the quiet I sought over the last two weeks as Faithful Homeschool lay silent.  Not quiet from you, my dear readers, but from myself as I worked at His leading instead of allowing myself to be led by Him.

On retreat with my dear family, away from phones, to-dos, school books and big screens... we walked, we played, we shared, we prayed.  Sweet peace descended and God's voice grew louder.  The view without became reflected within and in a little cabin, shored in by lake and framed in by mountain I saw the path again.

A retreat like that may not be possible again for a long time.  But the lessons and speakings of the Spirit to my heart will be carried as long as I choose to follow and remember.  My greatest prayer is to do His Words justice as I share here each week.  Allowing His Truths to unfold here with you, I pray that you may feel the sweet serenity of His great Peace there where you are.  In front of computer screens in living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. 

As I sat in the quiet and prayed mid-week, the Spirit put this song on my heart.  I share it with you now, that you may close your eyes and be enveloped in His blessed peace.

God bless you dear friends.  May you have a lovely and Spirit filled weekend.
