I am a southern girl. I
like to talk. I started talking early and haven't been quiet since. My own
daddy was forever offering me monetary gain to "just be quiet for five minutes."
for him, money was of no consequence to me. I never collected any funds and he
never got the peace and quiet that he so desired.
I have since learned to
listen. I am still a work in progress. I know the One to whom I should be
listening. It is my hearts desire to be an attentive listener to the One
that lives in my heart. I confess it is not always easy and there are days that
I rush things and think up my own answers. Not advisable.
I have been trying to
start writing on this blog again. My husband and I have prayed about it. What
would God have me do? I have posts that come to mind (witty and wonderful
of course) and The Lord says wait. Okay.
So we prayed some more. For a while now The Lord has been telling me what to do. Write with purpose. Huh? Explain please. Write with purpose. He tells me repeatedly. Write with purpose. Write with purpose. If you don't think God talks to His children, you probably just need to listen more. I did. I do. I will.
I will write this blog with purpose. I am listening to my Heavenly Father in a
way that I never did to my earthly one (sorry daddy). I will write this blog to
glorify my King.
I will continue to write
about my family, my children, adoption, special needs, Deafness, cochlear
implants, Trans racial adoption, foster care and more. This time, however, it
will be with purpose. It will be to honor my Savior.
I am listening.
