Gentle and Quiet is Strong and Loud
We are into an age of loud politicians who try to sway the public with aggressive stammering and hammering.
For me, I like to flip the page and see what is gentle and quiet. I find
all sorts of things when I look around and beyond myself.
Some of them are:
1 – A gentle breathing of a baby on its mother’s neck
2 – A soft gentle sunset closing a good day
3 – An old man shuffling down a sidewalk
4 – A woman’s sigh after hearing from her grown children
5 – A butterfly grasping a leaf
6 – Birds flying away up in the sky
7 – A hymn sung out of an open church door
8 – A story book opened at bedtime
9 – An oven door being opened to put lunch in it
10 – A soft consoling spot under a shade tree on a hot day.
The power of quiet tender ways have more lasting effects on us than we know and sometimes we forget to cherish them.
