Life of Silence

I have been suffering from allergies for 2 weeks now. That has brought on an infection in my voice box which has taken away my speech for the past 5 days. It has been both frustrating and relieving to not have a voice. I have had to be quiet and just "be".

I have enjoyed my solitude, but am ready to get to it! I have missed two language classes and I need to speak to my team. I can do neither right now. I had the internet for connection, but now that is not even working. The frustration level is rising, but I hold onto the fact and hope that God is right here beside me. He is watching over my every cough and every frustrated momement. He will not leave my side.

During my silence, I am trying to listen. All I hear right now is, "'Be' my dear child, just 'be' in Me and I in you.". Thanks to D. Thompson back home, I know what that means!

Please pray for my voice.
