The world is a noisy place. Even my house can be a noisy place; sometimes, unnecessarily so. I was noticing this morning that it is so nice to not have the television on.

I'd spent some time quietly reading in Acts and while moving on to some chores, flipped on the tv. It doesn't take long to catch the gist of things on the news and it just seemed noisy and disruptive to me so I turned off that set. Moving on to another project, this one in my kitchen, I turned on the small set in the corner and flipped it to The View. I don't know what the whole controversy is over some comments made by Rosie and the Donald, I'm pretty sure I don't want to know though; but the line that caught my attention said something about resurrecting the Women's Movement and "girls, let's stick together." It brought to mind what I'd been reading in Acts about people getting folks purposefully 'all riled up' and while I could say a lot more about it, it just seemed like more 'noise' to me. I flipped to another channel and that didn't seem to help, so I just turned it off.

Aw, silence again, well, just the sound of the washing machine in the background anyway.

The sky is blue and the air is crisp and well; can God paint a pretty picture or what! Here's to a 'blessed' day.
