Because I am enjoying a nice getaway with my husband and because I think more people should read my daughter's blog than mine, I am sending readers over to Mr. Hunter's Wife, where grace and vulnerability, wit and wisdom meet for some of the most poignant and delightful conversation around. Below begins her latest post, "Silence". I hope you read and enjoy, and I hope you regularly visit her blog. ~ LM

I say “somehow” because I really don’t understand what happened.
I was walking close with God. I could feel His presence in my every moment. I breathed in and smelled His glory in the summer air. I heard His praises in the quiet still of my jobless monotone.

I continued to get up early with Mister, to make some coffee and oatmeal with apples, to do the dishes, to feed the dog. I continued to ready myself for work and left at a reasonable time. I continued to work hard all day .....
