This is My Story. What’s Yours?

blogmystoryMy story. // Fragmented family. // Young bride. // Two boys born here on earth, one in heaven. // Divorced. Twice. Single mom. // Came face-to-face with Jesus in a duplex. // Returned to church. My grandmother’s church. A New Beginning’s Class. // Met my husband of 25+ years. // Gained two God-glorifying daughter-in-laws. // Chosen to be the grammy to four future foes of the enemy. // Surrounded by fellow warriors, aka, friends. // Praying. // Hoping. // Watching. // Believing. // The beginning. // The end. // The in-between.

Why Listening Matters

What are you listening to at this moment?

Me?

  • Steady rain pelting the windows
  • Thunder pealing
  • Fingers tapping madly away on a keyboard
  • George Winston’s “The Cries of the Wetland 2”
  • Tires playing in puddles
  • And okay, and the occasional slurping of coffee

Notice I chose the word listening instead of hearing, which is the simple the act of perceiving sound by the ear. Unless you’re hearing-impaired, hearing simply happens. Listening, however, requires a pause – a decision to concentrate.

I encourage you to set aside one minute today. Simply listen. Soak it in. Pay attention.

Let’s take in the melodies of life, nature, and even man-made devices and turn them into opportunities for pause and praise.
