Ever notice that when you’re up late, its quiet, the house is humming with water, furnace, fire.. whatever, that its almost as if time stands still?
In a way, the night seems endless, the peace, the still stretches on longer than you can fathom. So long so that eventually you usually just decide to go to bed.
Every once and a while I enjoy the quietness, think about things unthunk for many a moon and take in the moment. I can debrief myself on the day, stand back for a second or multiple from my busy-ness of everyday life and work and see what I’ve accomplished, where I’m at, even where God is in proximity.
Its these times and timeless times that I can wonder about Gods greatness, recognize His great blessing on our lives and simply enjoy breathing. Now thats pretty sappy for sure, but think about it. One of the most simple basic things, breathing, air, we take it for granted.
Have you thanked God your alive lately?
