Simon and Garfunkel’s Song

I love Simon and Garfunkel’s song, “The Sound of Silence”. The lyrics, “Hello darkness, my old friend, I’ve come to talk with you again” reminds me of what I would like quiet moments to be like.

A Time to be Silent and one to Speak

Ecclesiastes 3:7 reads, “A time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak”.

Learn to be Comfortable

Kim Bearden, author, and Co-Founder of The Ron Clark Academy says, “Learn to be comfortable with silence; it can speak as loudly as words”.

I have found that one of the toughest things for me is to listen in order to understand, without anticipating how I plan to respond. It takes patience and discipline to be silent and listen.
