poustinia moment


I introduced my three and a half year old grandson to the poustinia last week -
when he caught his first glimpse through the trees he became very very quiet -
instinctively taking off his sandals at the door, he slipped inside to sit on the cot-
he remained absolutely quiet and still
after some time I asked him what he was thinking .........
his response was
shhhhhhhhh I like the singing
I have never heard the singing .......
but his little ears and heart were filled with it

Andrea, that is such an amazing story. I would have loved to hear what he heard!
