The noise of Fire

Alone. Fearful for some, pleasure for others. The fire starts, it grows, increasing and decreasing in intensity. The sun sets, slowly, at its own pace. Darkness takes over light, Stars replace clouds, and the moon shines. Wind feeds the fire, Fanning the flames, heat from the logs. Quiet is the noise that surrounds the crackling of the fire. An occasional car in the distance, an unseen animal wandering around, the intensity of of the peace.

Nature has its own pattern, as light and darkness makes its way and its own time, winds come and and go, Flames rise and fall. There is no control within my power, no desires outside of what is around me. Peace and serenity, Darkness, surrounding nature, these are my companions this evening.

The power of my God is evident. I am always at His will. I am to walk, and He will set the direction, if I am wise enough to listen. God blesses us with a simplicity of his creation. We must learn not to muck it up with our busyness and our own noise.

Peace and serenity often find us if we are willing to take the time to be in its presence. Remember what is important and avoid becoming caught up with what is urgent. Our relationship with God is at our Center. A connection with our savior is key. Take the time to sit and be quiet, to stare into the flames of our lives, to hear the voices of the wind, and to enjoy the darkness and the stars and the moon and the peace that comes with it.
