I’ve been told on occasion that when I sleep, I snore. That’s ridiculous. I’m a girl. Girls don’t snore.
I purr. 🙂
I heard it called that the other day. It sounds so much more attractive. After all, I’m sure the sound I make is a result of a restful state of bliss. No worries. No thoughts. Just sweet uninterrupted slumber. Just like a kitten when it’s content.
There’s nothing more satisfying than listening to a cat purr. Have you ever thought about what exactly makes a cat purr?
It’s a sound that begins in the brain.
“A repetitive neural oscillator sends messages to the laryngeal muscles, causing them to twitch at a rate of 25 to 150 vibrations per second. This causes the vocal cords to separate when the cat inhales and exhales, producing a purr. Purring is a low-frequency vocalization that is often associated with positive social situations: nursing, grooming, relaxing, being friendly.”
Whatever the reason behind it, it is certainly a joyful noise.
If given the opportunity to purr, what things in your life would you purr about? The thought of a pleasant memory? Your job? Watching a good movie? Listening to your favorite song? Your spouse? Your kids? Your faith? The human touch?
Asleep or awake, let’s all make a joyful noise as we go about our daily lives. Let’s let others witness our spirits of contentment. Our God given, from deep within the soul, kind of contentment that only Christ can offer. Let’s let our praises be heard!
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises!
Love and laughter,
