In my Lenten scripture for this week.Proverbs 10:19 Too much talk leads to sin. Be sensible and keep your mouth shut. Wow if this proverb hasn’t hit home this week with silence. Talk can lead to all types of maladies as I have learned leads to lots of judging.
I am welcoming the silence although I am a talker I think the silence helps us connect with our deeper self on many levels. This will lead to true tranquility as Mark mentioned on Sunday. I believe that to learn to direct your thoughts takes the tranquility of silence.
