Watching TV, not speaking - comfortable silence
Sitting on the deck, sipping wine, not speaking - comfortable silence
We have been married almost fifty years, so have we run out of things to talk about? Heavens no! Or at least I haven't. It is not a lack of topics; it is just that - comfortable silence.

When we are comfortably silent with God, we can feel His presence. It is as if our breathing matches the rhythm of nature. It is as if our heart beats as one with eternity.
It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. Lamentations 3:26
