There Was Silence

Mom, my sisters and I were painting a beach scene at a “Coffee and Canvas” event. I admit my perfectionism had taken over and I was deep in concentration.

“Are you mad at me?” my sister asked.

“No. Why?” I replied.

“You aren’t talking.”

After almost ten years of being home alone most of the time, I do not talk as much as I used to. I have become accustomed to silence and even welcome it.

Today, most are uncomfortable in silence. The TV is always on and their phones are constantly beeping. It takes something shocking to silence them.

Revelation 8:1, “When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.” Modern English Version

“A dramatic pause before the next series of plagues – the final act of the drama is left undisclosed here, reserved to be presented later.” New International Version Study Bible Notes

The silence in heaven was because of shock and horror at the things to come.
