Spend 20 Minutes in Silence

Quiet is a hard thing to find; not only because noise is hard to get away from but because we so often have noise in our hearts even when we get away from sound.  Today work toward the simple goal of finding 20 minutes to sit in complete silence, silence of heart, mind, and space.  Just as noise cancelling headphones create a “white noise” to create quiet in a world where its hard to find, you may have to create a white noise in your heart with a simple word or phrase that you can use to push out the other noises that come.  Use something like “God is love” or “Lord have mercy.”  What will you hear in the silence?
