if i can ever steal a break, i love going driving alone, listening to a book or some music.
sometimes i have a gift card that needs spending, so i head to a coffee shop to refuel.
oh! or browsing a store, ahem, target.
and social media, of course. blog reading, tweeting, instagram...
even typing that out increased my heart rate.
sometimes resting is what i do. sometimes i choose quietness.
do you ever just sit in peace?
with no music, no netflix, no book, no phone. just you. alone with the quiet?
that's a struggle for me.

"i think the devil has made it his business
to monopolize on three elements: noise, hurry, crowds.
if he can keep us hearing radios, gossip, conversation, or even sermons, he’s happy.
but he will not allow quietness. satan is quite aware of the power of silence.
the voice of god, though persistent, is soft…for spiritual awareness and reception…
let us resist the devil in this by avoiding noise as much as we can,
purposefully seeking to spend time alone, facing ourselves in the word…
satan is aware of where we find our strength. may he not rob us!…
mark my ear, lord, that it might respond only to thy voice."
