Thankful Thursday 3-5-2020

Thankful Thursday gleams with sunshine welcoming the calls of the songbirds. As Cooper, our dog, and I walked this morning, we heard friendly hellos from other walkers, snapping twigs from squirrels scampering away from our presence, and the breeze blowing through tree branches. Once home, the sweet sounds of instrumental music created by talented artists floated through our rooms setting the mood for focus.

My attention to these sounds may be heightened due to the “fact of the day” shared by a local radio station on the morning drive. The fact shared: listening to loud music interferes with your vision. Thus the reason we turned down the radio when looking for a street sign!

While I haven’t researched the validity of the shared fact, I heightened my awareness to sound today. I do know my quiet time with God enhances the joys from the noise of the day. I’m grateful for the plethora of sounds. Setting the mood with music, soaking in creation’s song, or centering in quiet are all acoustical delights.

Listen to the sounds of your day to enrich your soul. Find your quiet time, whispers from creation, and moments bubbling over with laughter and love. And I pray your blessings multiply.

Blessings to you!
