The Happy Place: How I Found It

Wordless-ness

Wordless-ness

I have not yet learned to hold back my words in Prayer. I sit – silent – and words do come floating on wings, butterflies in my brain. In silence – You fill me I overflow with Words. Why, Words come to life in Silence! Have I so misunderstood? Do I...
