In the quiet can learn that we are lovable and that we can be and need to be loved. When we rest in God’s love — truly allow God into our being — we can acknowledge our imperfections, we can feel our wounds, we can see our scars and admit our sins. When we rest we can be quiet. In the quiet is God waiting for us.
“Be still, and know that I am God! Our God says, “Calm down, and learn that I am God!” 1
Today, this is my quiet whisper.
1 – Psalm 46:10, NLT, CEV

Welcome to all the new mysilentscream readers who joined us yesterday!
Here are a few holiday stress-busting suggestions:
Take a warm bath or a long relaxing shower.
Take a walk. Bundle up with a buddy and get your body moving. Walk outside. Look around.
Take a five deep relaxing breaths. Exhale slowly.
Take a nap. Nap – not to hide from your responsibilities, but to retreat, recharge and recover.

I sat in traffic this morning as people raced to work. Drivers jockeying for position. Leveraging a moment in time to jump ahead of another driver. Some guy in a Mazda had a really had a great trip but “he got bumped off the pole” by the guy in the BMW who was a bit faster.
Another guy — apparently not in the hurry others were in must have been — blocking the flow of traffic. I can envision him telling his buddies later at work that he “gave him a little rub” and passed him by. 1

I got “home from work” Wednesday and went to work.
I sat there worn out, yawning, shoulders aching, back-tight and worked until 2:30am.
You know how I felt don’t you?
Got a headache?
Tense and tired?
Wow have I been there!
Find time for relaxation.
I know, I know!
When my wife Amy or daughter Shannon are reading this I know they are smirking.
“You just told someone else to “Find time for whatever relaxation.”
Hah! When are you going to relax?!?”
