    The last quiet moment you had, what did you think about? If it is unsharable, go to one before that.

    I find myself thinking unfathomable thoughts, regarding questions so complex that an answer is impossible, It has left me curious about everyone else's mind. Is it as wandering as mine??

    It seems like I don't have very many  quiet moments but the last few days I have been thinking so much of my  best friend who just underwent a breast cancer operation, I  have spent time praying  for her, It seems like anymore I have so many  people that need prayer for health or other problems. Sometimes I just think back to some of the good old days  when everybody didn't seem to have so many problems,it was a more peaceful life back then.

      Cancer is a terrible thing. I too think about the problems of this age. Perhaps it is all the additives we consume nowadays. However I then think about how greatly the average life span has increased. It baffles me.

    The direction of my life...whether I'm weathering my storms well or not and trusting God as completely as I should. Sometimes you feel as though you're failing the tests. But God is faithful.

      Perhaps sometimes by failing your tests you are infact passing them. Things can seem terrible at times, but sneakily fulfilling, perhaps setting you up for future trials. And besides, no matter how hard you have had it, you're still alive. Live well!

    I have a fair share of quiet moment in a space where I can clear my mind. Every time when I find myself in a fix or need to have peace in mind, I will go to my space where I will clear my head in the quiet area.

    It helps me to process and finding a solution to my issues.

    If instead of man and woman we referred to each other by our genotypical traits would there be sexism in the world?

    That was the thought.

      There would probably be an array of other 'ism's' in the world though smile

    Actually, before reading the rest of your question, I was thinking you meant quite as peaceful and peaceful is good, so I was going to say it was last night while cooking dinner and looking outside the window at my children playing and looking at the tree in front, listening to the birds, feeling summer approaching and thinking how lucky I am, I really felt really lucky... But, then I read the rest and realized that is not what you meant and the fact is that most of the times, when it's quiet, which usually happens at night, especially when I can't sleep, which is often, I do a lot of thinking and not the good kind... every fear I have comes alive, then, the last time it was past midnight and I couldn't shake off the feeling that there was something missing, that I had failed terribly, my goals where were they and the dreams and the writing... Well, when I put it like that it doesn't seem much, but there was a real war going on and usually there's a lot of that inside me, that's why I usually try to keep busy... to quiet the voices in my head... There are a lot of ghosts here...

    Overflowing with gratitude for the deep peace of a truly quiet moment. And, last weekend, I had a truly slow day for the first time in my life. I think I've finally stopped being an overachiever!

    I reflected on the faithfulness of God, our Father in manifesting promises that He has spoken to me!
