Can you hear the whispers?

Yesterday was not a quiet day.

It was flock-of-snow-geese noisy!


It was stand-strong, prepare for harsh, winter weather, gray, moody kind of day.


Today dawned cold, but crisp and clear.


A we-weathered-another-storm kind of day.


The kind of quiet where the peaceful sounds of livestock munching their hay whispers,

“Be still and know that I am God…”  Psalms 46:10


The kind of morning when the trees whisper,

A little more time, but soon, soon it will be spring.  Promise.


In the meantime, friends,

    Beautifully written and illustrated. Thanks for such a delightful and heartwarming post.

    A few mornings ago four geese flew over me at around dawn, honking loudly. They were so low I could hear their wings flapping. Made me smile. I’m not sure what my reaction would have been if there had been hundreds of them. Honestly, I’ve never seen that many geese at one time!

    • Thank you, Bill. I am glad you enjoyed the post. My mind has been whirling around this week, a bit like those geese. They were amazingly loud! My goats were staring, but by the time I had my camera the goats were back to eating.
