For years, one of my favorite sounds has been the rustling of pages as people at church open their Bibles to find the passage being used in the sermon. Nowadays, many people use digital media for the Bibles so there is no sound. In fact, some preachers have gone from saying “Open your Bibles” to “open your Bible app.”
I am not a fan. I still use a physical Bible and rustle the pages.
It is the sound of the wind blowing through the corn stalks. We have planted several rows of corn along with squash, beans, and peppers.
As I was pulling the weeds from around the peppers, I heard the most wonderful rustling. I stood up to see the corn gently swaying in the breeze. It was a very peaceful sound that made me smile.
I will be back to work in the garden. Weeds are relentless. I just can’t be guaranteed the wind will be blowing.
Fortunately, I have the sound of the corn stalks rustling recorded in my head. I smile each time I think of it.
