It is such a beautiful spring morning! I looked out of my window during meditation and I was greeted by loud and joyful chirping of different kinds of birds in our garden. I breathed in the fresh air and drank in their beautiful singing. We’ve just finished our Morning Praise (Lauds) and the birds were also singing their praises to God their Creator!

I listened, not with my ears but with my heart. In this great silence I let the beautiful harmony they make sink in me! It is so comforting and calming. I could sit there for hours just being present to the sound. The great silence and their melodious singing go so hand in hand. Peace, deep peace filled my innermost. God is awesome!
