6 Jul

5ish-am. I’ve been awake for a few hours. At least. New neighbors across the street outside talking loudly so George called the police. Again. Good ole’ George, the quintessential old man living alone with nothing better to do (George lives directly across the street).

Like he said to me the other day, ‘They’re (authorities) probably tired of me calling them all the time.’ Ya think? – Cars parked out front, there too long; neighbors outside (3 in the am), talking loud; big pine tree across the alley might fall on his house; neighbor’s (other side) cat keeps coming in his yard; deer are getting into his garden. George is harmless but come on, get a hobby or something.

We live in a small town so I’m certain this morning’s incident will find it’s way into The Blotter. Again. A small section in our once-a-week-four-page hometown newspaper that, among other things, chronicles the activities of those that Protect and Serve: report of vehicle off road; two elk hit and laying in roadway. Backup requested; elderly male striking neighbor with a cane; suspicious circumstance: smoke detected. Mayberry criminal activity type stuff like that.  Yep, just another beautiful day in the neighborhood.

The Whisper of God

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
