Morning Quietness

I get up early on mornings when I go deer hunting.  The deer season in AL is so long, and our Christmas break is so long, that I got in the habit of getting up early ,even though deer season ended last Saturday (31 Jan).  It's kinda nice to get to campus early.  The parking is much better now.  The quietness of the campus is the best part.  There is little traffic.

No one comes into the office on the second floor until about 0800, and I got here a bit before 0700.  No phone rings, new emails are rare.  I can get a lot done before 0800.

I have written about the quiet of the deer stand before.  Quiet is good.

Scripture tells us, "Be still and know that I am G^d...".  (Ps 46:10)

I think that verse is MORE IMPORTANT than ever.  There sin't much stillness, much quiet, left in the world.  We have smartphones and ear-buds, and computers, and lots of other stuff.

"Be still and know that I am G^d....".

Get up early if you have to...

  1. I love the Freudian slip, "There sin't much stillness..." Clever or accidentally poignant.
