Friends, right now my house is quiet.

One kid is typing a "book" on the computer.

One kid is doing homework.

One kid is reading a book.

No music is playing, no cat is meowing, no phone is beeping.

And I sigh.  And I smile.

Because it's more than just my house that's quiet.  My brain is quiet, and my heart is quiet.

And I am thankful.

Because I was able to strike a better balance this week.  Sometimes we forget how important that is, and we get caught up in the whirlwind of keeping up.

But if I could encourage you today, I would say this:

Stop.  Pray.  What's really necessary?  What needs to change?

And then stop.  And pray.

And make those changes.
