What’s a Normal Day Like for You?

What’s a normal day like for you? If you’re like the majority of the country, and I imagine you are, it goes pretty much as follows.

You wake up in the morning to the sound of an alarm clock. You start your pot of coffee, put something in the microwave, possibly turn on the blender and then, scarf down your morning meal in front of the television, absorbing the first-edition of the daily news amidst here a ding, there a ding everywhere a ding, ding.

After your shower, shave, and shampoo you move through a plethora of beeps, rings, boinks, and any other sounds you can imagine emanating from numerous devices.

You slide into the front seat of your automobile. During this period, there is no telling the many different devices that will utter some type of noise in order to start, stop, or maybe even self-destruct.

As you drive to work, another wave of noise pelts your eardrums, as you chime in singing to familiar songs on the radio.

You arrive at work, begin the shutdown process of your vehicle, and leave the garage with the final beep, as you set your ride’s alarm so no one can steal your point-from-A-to-B baby.

You trudge through eight hours of work, bombarded with every start, stop, paper-jam, beep, click, bonk and pludge sound available at this point in time.

Let’s face it. We have become so inundated with every sound available in the hearing spectrum pelting our brains day-in and day-out.

One day silence is going to hit us and we are not going to know what hit us (what you have just seen is redundancy in action). They used to call it noise pollution, now I guess it’s what we would term the norm . . .  just saying!

Well, if I don’t know anything I do know this. God loves you and is with you no matter what. Have a great day and give a shout out to the one who created you. He’d love to hear from you!
