turn it down!

Our house has lots of activity, translate that to mean noise.  Given that my kids are 5, 6 & 8 and that they already enjoy listening to Isabell’s hello kitty stereo at LOUD levels, I’m fairly apprehensive about the approaching teen years.  >:/

This all makes me think about Job 20:20,  “”Because he knew no quiet within him, He does not retain anything he desires.”

There’s alot to be said about maintaining a quiet place in your heart – a place that is still, quiet & without anxiety, stress, etc.  Our lives are full of busy-ness, demands, pressures, uncertainties & loud things – that’s a given.  But cultivating a quiet place in your heart is not a given, although from what Job says, this is very important in relation to our desires.

Keep a little quiet in your heart.
