"The trees, the flowers, the plants grow in silence. The stars, the sun, the moon move in silence. Silence gives us a new perspective." Mother Theresa is the source of this quote.
"Mirroring the creation of the universe, all great things have come from the ancient weave of silence. it is a part of us that we must welcome home." Frank MacEowen
It is a grace to have time just to sit in silence with Jesus. The amazing thing is that He wants just to sit with us. Words are not necessary. Why are we not comfortable with silence when we know that this is not only restful, but it releases us from so many concerns and, in the silence, we sink into a deep peace and find more energy afterwards to deal with those same concerns.
