Silence is the absolute poise or balance of body, mind and spirit.
What are the fruits of silence? They are self-control, true courage, endurance,
patience, dignity and reverence. Silence is the cornerstone of character.

Thank you for sharing this quote on silence and the cornerstone of character.

Great picture too....the silent snow rests on the evergreen. Silence and peace. I am blessed to have seen this. Thank you.

i thought about you late last night wondering if nature had bestowed a new fallen snow upon your woods as the famous storm moved southeast.

As Beverly commented- I love the soft quiet of snow fall. I am just learning to remember that about winter. Your place is so comfortable- teri

Wondering and worrying about your silence over the past week. Miss you when you don't post. I was ready to try to track down your daughter to check on you. That being said, I loved your post!
