Posts Tagged ‘Noise’

Are you the type of person who likes to turn the tv or radio on as soon as you get out of bed and chat to the rest of your household or do you like quiet and time to ‘come to’ slowly and peacefully?

I’m definitely the later, I hate noise or talking when I get up in the morning, and by that I mean for about the first hour of two after I get out of bed!

Are there specific things you like or want to include in your morning routine? For me having some quiet time after I awake gives me that time to just be, to think about the day ahead, to pray for the day ahead and the other people or situations on my prayer list.

So even if you like your noise in the morning, make sure you still find some quiet time with God, making him not just part of your every day, but the centre of your day.

enjoy-the-silenceI know I’ve talked before about how some folk just seem to have their volume control turned up to full all the time, but there are in fact some times when the quietness can be just as uncomfortable…

Ever noticed how many of us don’t like it when it’s quiet, when no-one is talking? Funny how someone always feels the need to break that quietness…usually with something completely unrelated to any previous discussion, and in many occasions trying to be funny but completely failing!

Have you ever noticed how there are some people you can sit in silence with for ages and never feel uncomfortable with? They are the folk you love and trust, and that is why silence is so easy to cope with and not uncomfortable at all.

So, yes, there are some times when quietness or silence is uncomfortable, but then there are also some situation where the silence is just so natural. Hold onto those relationships where silences are comfortable as they are your important and valuable relationships.
