21 May

This morning, whilst stirring in a vapor between slumber and awareness, I heard an opus I thought had all but been replaced by the errant ill-behavior of mother nature for this time of year. I slumbered out of bed and pulled the curtain away from the dew covered window, squinted my eyes for a better view through the glass, and saw the musicians taking their places: a colony of seagulls on the roof next door; a murder of crows on the back wire; and a gaggle of harmonizing geese, high in the distance. The oeuvre was a little out-of-tune what with the guttural aw-uck of the gulls evoking a nostalgic summer day, and the cacophonous caw babble of the crows who were, as usual, attempting to out-do one another. They were rehearsing, whilst the faithful rendition of honking overhead was the sweet melody they were aspiring to. Hink-a-honk-a-hink-a-honk, male and female geese alternating their reverberations so closely that it sounded like a single bird.

 Yes, indeed, this is going to be one beautiful day.

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.
