When you are in love, lovers say, the whole world speaks of the one you love. It is hard to think of anything else. Your heart overflows. When you speak, it is hard not to speak of him. And when you are silent you daydream of her. Her absence is intolerable.
So too, those who love God are never weary thinking of him, living for him, yearning for him, and talking of him, To them, the whole world speaks in a silent language of love, exciting them to thoughts of the one they love—exciting us, if we listen to thoughts of the one we love—firing an insatiable yearning to be in his presence.
Speak, then, when you are spoken to. Do not be embarrassed to acknowledge that everywhere and always you hear the voice of the one you love. Go where your heart takes you.
Thank you for all the gifts of this day, especially for never staying far from my thoughts, for being everywhere I looked, for filling every silence with your voice, for giving me a reason to speak with you at every turn.
(Set Your Heart Free, the Practical Spirituality of Francis de Sales)
