I heard my son playing his piano very soft and quiet last night. I could barely hear the notes. As I strained to listen the soft notes comforted me and put me at ease.
How many soft sounds in life do we miss? The soft sounds of nature, birds, gentle breezes, the laughter of a baby, the quiet spoken hello of a stranger, or the lull of an air conditioner? Do we miss it because our hearing is poor? Or do we miss it because we are not attentive?
We need to live a more intentional life. We need to find that quiet that gives us the space and ability to listen to the wings of the butterfly. Try to create that space today. Today, listen for the soft sounds in your life and take comfort in their peace.
