Taking Time to Listen to the Sound of Crickets
My daughter just got better today from being sick. Anyway, this gave me time to read some book quotations that I love reading that would lit up a tiring day! It's been a hot weather in couple of days now so I took time to stay at my porch, again drink coffee, took pictures of the sunset reflection, amazed with natures night beauty!
As I sit right now at my porch I am hearing these crickets outside that never stops! They're sound is all I hear. But, I am thankful because it gives me a chance today to be thankful for God's creation. Out of busy day... It's hard to find a time to simply sit and contemplate into anything under the sun. The time hasn't given me a chance to be at the beach or anywhere I want to be at the moment. When I sit here and hear the cricket sounds... I said... Wow! There's still nature that I hear in the midst of our busy place that we live in where you hear cars running by all the time! For now... I am hearing the crickets. It reminds me of God that He's there in the midst of busy life. The fact that it's not cold yet... So I can stay longer here just to simply listen.... And appreciate God's simple creation and beauty of life...
Indeed, this night has given me a glimpse of real life sound aside from all technologies around us. I will enjoy this nice warm night weather ... with the crickets around me... while watching my daughter recover. I mostly hear these crickets when I was a kid! - Have a great warm night everyone!!!
