A Bit of Silence

These thoughts were taken from this morning's devotional reading and were found in the book, Celtic Daily Prayer.

"If we practised silence a little bit more, then when we did speak we'd have something to say." - John Skinner -

"I weave a silence on to my lips
I weave silence into my mind
I weave silence within my heart
I close my ears to distractions
I close my eyes to attractions
I close my heart to temptations.
Calm me, O Lord, as You stilled the storm
Still me, O Lord, keep me from harm
Let all the tumult within me cease
Enfold me, Lord, in your peace."
- David Adam -
