Listen to the quiet sounds of stillness in nature to appreciate the gift of life.

Venture into the out of doors, take a moment and tell me what you hear.

Get away from the traffic, and remove yourself from the hustle and bustle of the busy city.

I render emergency dental care in Kansas City.

A garden wedding today is the backdrop for an event secluded from the sound of traffic.

To sit quietly before the guests arrive gives me the chance to momentarily exhale.

The sound of a woodpecker’s beak blasting the rotted wood from the hollow tree above me is a reminder of the echos found in nature.

Leaves falling from the trees signal to prepare for the coming winter.

In the quiet of your day observe and listen to what nature’s surroundings are showing you.

We communicate with our surroundings in both positive and negative ways.

Flip a cigarette butt into the falling leaves and all hell may disrupt the peace of the day.

Take the time to pick up trash polluting a flowing stream and the wildlife  return.

The most positive thing I can do today is appreciate the stillness and not allow the coming event to stress me or those about to enter into holy matrimony.

Life has a way of showing us different views of the same picture.

Our experiences shade our eyes and we see what we want to see.

Many occasions the answers to what we are seeking are right before our eyes.

Look through glasses clouded with fear and you look beyond what you seek.

We tend to find in life what we are looking to achieve with positive energy and clarity of thought.

Take the time to be a part of stillness; embrace it as you would a good friend.

Slowing down to rest in stillness propels you to even greater heights.

In Genesis we are told the Creator of heaven and earth rested at the end of the sixth day.

We remember the rest period at the end of the sixth day from sundown Friday to sundown on Saturday known as the true seventh day.

You will live longer and have a healthier life if you can find a way to rest in stillness at least one day in the week.

Bring the quiet sounds of stillness into your life, slow down to rest, and you have found another piece of the puzzle of life.
