Words have power whether they are spoken or written. I’ve written about this before here.
There are times I just love being with Tom and no words need to be spoken. There is comfort in being with each other because we know each other so well. He can give me a look and I know what he is thinking. With a simple touch of his hand, he can speak volumes to me.
I’m a big fan of the written word. I love to read and I love to write. With that being said, yesterday I posted just a video. No words, just background music. Without a spoken or written word across the screen it evoked many emotions. By some of the comments people were moved to tears. Sometimes words aren’t necessary.
In my prayer times, I’ve spent a good amount of time just being in God’s presence. No words spoken just silence. There is peace. There is a time for words and a time for silence. I’ve come to appreciate all these times.
