Under The Charcoal Tree.

“We need to find God, and He cannot be found in noise and restlessness.
God is the friend of silence.
See how nature – trees, flowers, grass – grows in silence;
see the stars, the moon and the sun,
how they move in silence ……

We need silence to be able to touch souls.”
~ Mother Teresa.

“I come to meet You, God,
and as I linger here,
I seem to feel You very near.
A rustling leaf, a rolling slope
speak to my heart of endless hope.
The sun just rising in the sky.
The waking birdlings as they fly,
The grass all wet with morning dew
and telling me I just met You.”

    The bible says my children know my voice and they will follow no other.

    hey Michael,

    I wrote a post on Mother Teresa and desires. In a world where desires dominate, you find this lady who seems to be happy without desires for herself.

    How?

    Maybe desires are not the path to happiness.

    My preacher says our God is the God talking to us. We need silence to listen to Him. Although there are many noises in the world, we could build up a silent space within ourselves, to catch His voice. Have a nice weekend!

  7. Beautiful Michael! It reminds me of a time I sat under a tree and the wind rustling through the leaves. I sat and imagined the wind of God’s Spirit and presence around me and it brought tears to my eyes. He is ever present!

  8. Simply sweet and beautiful!
