God's poet is silence! His song is unspoken,
And yet so profound, so loud, and so far,
It fills you, it thrills you with measures unbroken,
And as soft, and as fair, and as far as a star.
"Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose." Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Mark Ellison was in France for his brother's wedding, and he was at dinner with people who spoke no English. Since dinner in France can last over three hours , the silence was very uncomfortable. But they had this delightful fish water pitcher that gurgled when you poured from it, it broke the silence and made everyone smile. He drank a lot of water that night. Returning back home, he determined to replicate the pitcher. And ten years and fifteen molds later, he created The GurglePot. It makes a wonderful wedding gift. I came across these in a gift shop and was enchanted by them, it was there that I read the story. I am so tempted to buy just a little one!! You can hear the sound they make if you go online. Which is your favorite size and color? Does silence make you uncomfortable? A lot of people like some kind of background noise all the time. I think it's comforting in a way.
"In repentance and rest is your salvation,
in quietness and trust is your strength."
