this weekend i got caught up on my friend chris's blog. one day he decided that he would start to drive in silence during his commute. rather than spending the 12 minutes listening to a few songs, he chose to spend that time in prayer.
upon reading this, my first thought was "that would not be very peaceful if i turned off the music in my car."
for those of you who don't know, last year someone attempted to steal my catalytic converter. they didn't take it, but they did saw into my exhaust pipe. it has been welded, twice, but it's just a patch. it's not really fixed, and therefore my car is loud. and i mean l o u d. so i drown it out by blasting music.
i hide the noise with music, and the noise is the telltale sign that there is a problem with my car.
i could say the same about my heart.
