The holiday season is upon us now, and many people will entertain family and friends in their homes. With much company comes much noise.

It’s always a joy to have company and fellowship one with another; however, as much as we enjoy it sometimes, we are ready to enjoy quietness. Sometimes I enjoy going to my office and doing nothing but enjoying the peace and quietness. Other times, I long for the noise of family and friends. I enjoy the times of both

In my times of quietness, I relax and think about how blessed I am to have a good family and many good friends. In spite of the problems of our nation and all that is going on in life around us, I agree with the singer, Louis Armstrong, It’s a Wonderful World.

I think sometimes in our life, quietness is a good therapy.

“I have often regretted my speech, never my silence.” — Publius Syrus.

There are times when most of us wish we could relive a time when we spoke out of turn or spoke to quickly without thinking.

I need wide spaces in my heart

Where Faith and I can go apart

And grow serene

.Life gets so choked by busy living

That love slips by unseen.

If possible today when you finish reading this column, take time out and spend ten minutes in quietness and feel the difference.

Think about it!
