no noise

The older I get, the more I think about my ultimate destiny.  It isn't about what I have done - but how I have done it.  The best thing my parents taught me was to acknowledge personal responsibility.  When I moved to NYC at 22 - I thought I had the world on my plate, but was always aware of the fact that all my actions had consequences.  I'm not proud of some of the things I have done, but thankful that I have found my way through it all and feel  blessed to be where I am today.  Where the noise goes away - like when television wasn't a 24 hour onslaught on the senses.

Colossians 3: 1. If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3. For ye are dead , and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear , then shall ye also appear with him in glory. 5. Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry: 6. For which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: 7. In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. 8. But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth. 9. Lie not one to another , seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; 10. And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:

John, thanks for the reminder about the sound of silence. Had forgotten about that. Last heard when I lived in Alaska. Looking forward to a change of space ... and the calming silence.
