Loud . . .my first reaction is to place my hands over my ears and run for solitude.
I don't like loud. I have a quiet personality with a quiet voice.
But if the whole world were quiet, it would be an odd place indeed.
For with noises we have there is evidence of life's activities. For in the loudness of life we have an endless array of sounds -- music, laughter, birds singing, thunder, rain, a loved one's voice.
While my inner being craves quiet and serenity, I'm thankful to God for two functioning ears that allows to hear all the wonderful noises on this earth. And I realize I need to embrace the gift of loudness in my life.
