This post has nothing to do with a picture with no words. It has to do with 15 minutes of actual wordlessness. On the way to school this morning, I didn't turn on the radio. The boys were reading. Julianna was looking out the window at her world. And it was quiet. Wonderfully, refreshingly quiet. This does not happen often in our car. Someone is always talking or singing or making sound effects of one kind or another. And the radio is usually on since we (especially Josh and I) love music and singing along. I even reached for the power button this morning, but realized just in time that it was quiet and didn't push the button. Instead I took advantage of these few minutes of peace and prayed. I prayed for all the things I pray for everyday--my family and friends, protection, guidance. I had a quiet conversation with my Father and enjoyed the wordlessness...because I know from experience that it won't happen again for a long, long time.
