This Silence Is Deafening!!!

So Victoria and the kids went off to camp yesterday and now it’s just me and the rabbit, who has been fed and had a little run around the room, she seems happy enough at least.

It’s true the silence in this house is strange, the house lacks soul because the kids aren’t here to fill it with noise, no Ben shouting at the Playstation or the sounds of Good Luck Charlie played loudly as Eve makes loom bands!

Do I prefer the noise and the annoying interruptions or the silence, well actually I would take the noise everyday of the year!

A few days ago I was pretty fearful of being alone in an empty house, fearing the worst parts of me would start to show, but at the moment, apart from this silence, I feel pretty content.

I’ve been out walking again this morning, another 8½ miles, no sunrise this morning, only grey skies and a downpour of rain, so no pictures to share, but I did have some great thinking time, working through in my head and in prayer how to approach the request for help from a friend across the Atlantic.  Which is also keeping my mind pretty busy this evening, it’s taken my mind from my own problems, to how I can used my experience to help another, not always an easy process, but I am glad that I can help in some way at least and early signs seem encouraging.

Hopefully the rest of the week is going to be pretty busy and my nights will be filled with things to keep my mind occupied and not drowning in silence.

NEW DAY by GREEN RIVER ORDINANCE
In the city that never sleeps,
Restless hearts are moving through the beat
Trying to find out who we trying to be
Nowhere to go
Man on the corner asking for some change
Several arms are reaching for a way
So many times you know I hear them say
Nowhere to go

Whoa, yeah I need a hallelujah
I said, whoa,
Whoa, yeah I need a hallelujah
There’s a … Us all
Hurting and … To break my fall
I need a town
Whoa brother would you come and help me out

Whoa, yeah I need hallelujah
I said, whoa,
Whoa, yeah I need a hallelujah

When you walk in this fire, just open your eyes, sing

Need somebody, …get away
Never gonna … The lovers do, running away
Yesterday has gone away
You’re waiting on a new day
Need somebody, …get away
Never gonna … The lovers do, running away
Yesterday has gone away
You’re waiting on a new day
No lost in … We’re lost in …whoa
Need somebody, …get away
Never gonna … The lovers do, running away
Yesterday has gone away
You’re waiting on a new day
Need somebody, …get away
Never gonna … The lovers do, running away
Yesterday has gone away
You’re waiting on a new day.

    Thank you, Wayne! I share my house with my mum and currently she is away visiting family on the other side of the country. She will be gone for a total of 3 weeks. It is quiet here. I miss the noise but I also enjoy the quiet (as I can worship and pray easier). However, due to some serious health issues I become frightened.at times. Your words give me hope. God gives me grace to go through each day/night and yet I am still here with no major issues. A year ago I would of been really frightened but today the words of “Fear Not” stand larger than life and I have hope as do you.
