Day 6 - Do You Hear What I Hear???

This morning, I sat on the back porch and felt the sun, warm on my face.  The dogs were scampering around the yard; the birds were chirping; the air was very still.  And I heard....bells

Church bells, to be exact.  Keep in mind, the nearest church that has bells in the tower is at least two miles away from our house.  I don't think I have ever heard the sounds of their music from here before.  But, this morning, I could hear it very distinctly....carrying across the distance, sweet and pure.

It was a wonderful moment.  I just sat very still, listening to the peal of the bells and counting the strikes of the clock.  Nine o'clock....each ring as clear as the one before.

I simply soaked it all in....until the music faded away.

What a beautiful way to start the day.  It was a gift, both for the hearing and the soul.  And for that, I am truly thankful.

Enjoying the sounds of the season....



  1. Church bells are one of my most favorite things to hear. We heard them all the time in Germany and they just bring back so many happy memories. I can't tell you all the times, we just sat and waited for them. What a wonderful way to start your day!
