July's Joy Journal Project ... Quiet

July's Joy Journal Project theme is...Quiet.  I've been reading Richard Foster's book, Celebration of Discipline, specifically about the spiritual discipline of meditation.

In the midst of hectic time bound days, I find that time for meditation on God's word to be the answer to my heart's cry for quiet.  Taking a few minutes a day to escape the demands on my time, I find that prayer and meditation to bring about peace and a clear mind.  Mix in a little of His creation and some creativity and I have a guaranteed quieting of my inward heart.
