"it is a great thing to know the season for speech and the season for silence..."

i find myself upon a crossroad
to the left are words unsaid
unnecessary, futile
seemingly important only to me,
a voice that longs to speak,
express, to be understood
to the right is silence
quiet, peaceful, calm,
a voice which begs to be still
and rest in knowing
that a thousand words can be spoken
in a moment of quiescence
in the wind a gentle voice whispers
"stay to the right"
and i follow
understanding that
for every time there is a season
and this is my time
to be still

listening, learning, and leaning on faith...

quote: Seneca (5BC - 65AD)
Roman dramatist, philosopher and politician
who also said,
"difficulties strengthen the mind as labor does the body"


  1. Everything will be alright in the end
    If it isn't alright
    Then it isn't the end.

  2. Dear Terri,
    The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water, but to walk on the earth.
    Keep moving with all your hopes in your eyes.
    Loads of love.
