It's the first day of May and it was such a beautiful day. Happy May Day!! It was windy at my place today, almost wish I'd had the day off and could have just been home, but it at least it was a beautiful Friday. I took a picture a while back of a beautiful chair amongst the tall grass and I just loved it.
I don't know why it reminded me that sometimes life whispers to us through various forms and instead of seeing all the beauty all around us, instead we just focus on the weeds and tall grasses instead of focusing on what we should be. What is life whispering to you, are you listening. Do you feel changes coming around the corner and you resist because of fear, negative things that's happened, or confusion. You just don't know which direction to take for fear you'll make the wrong decision. When I was growing up, Baptist of course, my family always taught me to listen to the still small voice inside me. But as time has gone on I've listened to life, whether good or bad, but I find myself still listening, praying and searching for the right answers, wishing at times my Mother could still just tell me which way to go, but I know I've got to listen to what life is whispering to me. It's not always something that will knock you off your feet, but it's the quiet that speaks to you. It sometimes warns you of danger around the corner, or to make a decision you'd never thought of, or something new will come to mind and it's just the answer you've needed. Someone might call or email just to say hello and something they say without even knowing it is exactly what you needed to hear.
When I was in Warrenton during the shows, I say two birds sitting on the electrical lines and I thought how beautiful they look, so peaceful. I'm naturally a bird watcher and could sit hours just watching them. At that time I wished I had a zoom feature on my camera, but nevertheless they still caught my attention. While watching them I thought of decisions I've recently been putting off because of the lack of direction I wasn't sure about which way to go. I'm learning to listen to the still small voice for direction and even if I make a mistake, it's okay, I'm human and I know somehow God will open another door that might have closed.
Are you listening. Listen to the whisper.
