Without Words

"The first thing to do when you awake is to open the windows of your soul."
                ~Dom Lorenzo Sculpi

I was in my chair this morning about to say my prayers, and I found myself drawn to  the stillness of the day. I just sat, blankly looking out the window, when my eye caught the dew trapped in an intricate spider web. The beauty of the web, something about the anticipation of  quiet hopeful waiting, refreshed my spirit. I realized that sometimes the loudest prayers are without words, and that God  often speaks to me in silence. Today I will try to talk less and listen more. Only that which is empty is capable of being filled.
