It’s Sunday and the temp is well below zero. Even the dog was hesitant to go outside, but he gave in to nature’s call.

As I waited for him in the cold silence, I took a minute to soak it in. We live right near a busy highway, but there was nary a sound. The cold air pierced my old decrepit lungs as I pulled my jacket collar over my nose. My eyebrows were already getting frosty.

Suddenly, in the frigid air. I could hear the sound of wind chimes, gently clinking. The dog was ready to go in, and my weary body was longing to go back to my nice warm bed, but for one single moment, I experienced the peace of a cold, clear, quiet Sunday morning.

May the peace of God be with you today!


As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on

    Beautiful. Frigid comes in a couple of days here in SW PA, but I do like nearly absolute silence. They are constructing a huge bridge near our house, part of the toll road that will become the SW by-pass of Pittsburgh. I hope that doesn’t ruin our occasional silence.

  4. I was right there with you! We were above zero today but it sounds like the last day for a bit that we will be. There is a certain silence that comes with really cold weather. I wonder if that is the silver lining for living in it?
