Yes, that means it is quiet and peaceful in my home at the moment. My daughter has gone to stay at Nana's for the evening & my son is somewhere inventing something!
Isn't it amazing how much you can enjoy the sounds of nature when it is quiet?
When I was young, I could never understand why my Mum liked the quiet, now I do!
Quietness can be hard to attain as a homeschooling family.
What sort of things do you do to create quiet time?
Do you think it is necessary?
I really believe quiet time is important in such a busy & fast paced generation. I know it's when I hear the gentle whisper of the Holy Spirit, instructing, encouraging, comforting and teaching me the things The Lord wants me to learn.
I know people who cannot stand to be without noise, because they don't like being left with their own thought patterns or memories, so they make sure their is always some sort of noise to distract their mind.
There are a few verses from the bible that is coming to my mind about quietness, and they are-
Be still, and know that I am God; - Psalm 46:10
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me
beside the still waters. - Psalm 23:2
My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from
him. - Psalm 62:5
I am so grateful for God's peace that passes all my understanding and to be honest, I just don't think I would cope with life without Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
Anyway, on the homeschooling front, we have 5 weeks left before we finish Ambleside year 3.
Does anyone know a really cool website where they have science experiments that you could send me to?
What are you all up to?
