Are you listening?



Thursday nights are sacred in my home.

It's TGIT!


The Thursday night television line up is so good. It starts at 8p and goes through 11p, most weeks.

So what does that mean for the children?

It means don't talk to me unless it's on commercial. It means ask all of your questions before 8p. It means that Thursday is the one night I claim for myself.

Even though the kids know this, there is always someone who forgets the rules...or maybe they just do not care about the rules 🤔

In either event, there is always a question after 8p.

....and one of my daughter's asks her question while the show is NOT on commercial.

That means that I completely miss her question.

I miss it because I am otherwise distracted by the television show.

You know this doesn't just happen during the Thursday night lineup.

Often times God tries to talk to us but we don't hear Him.

We fail to hear Him because we allow distractions to overshadow His voice.

We fail to hear Him because we take time to listen to everything except Him.

We fail to hear Him because we we are in position to hear Him when He speaks.

Reshape your perspective from God's not speaking, to perhaps I'm not always listening.

What can you do to position yourself to hear from God?

  1. I think the major problem (not really a problem) is hearing from GOD and acting on what he said. That's the scary part.

A Small Tear

I could barely see.  My eyes felt itchy and irritated.  I thought I was tired from a full day of work. Sitting at a computer. Taking meetings with clients. Staff meetings. All the work of a typical Friday. But the day was not over. I still had an hour left in my two and a half hour drive down the two-lane, tree surrounded road to Tallahassee.  I was rubbing my eyes and blinking so much to stop the itch. Nothing was working. Nothing was soothing me.  I drove in discomfort as long as I could......then I reached my breaking point.  When I arrived at a stopping point in my travels, I removed my contact lenses. Before I replaced the contacts with glasses, I took a look at the lenses.  If only I would have recognized the signs sooner.... The left lens had a tear.  Side note: The thing I have yet to grasp is how a contact lens that is inside the eye gets a tear without even being touched. If you can explain how this happens, feel free to drop the knowledge i
