Listening...

Lately I've felt that I've heard the sound of my own voice a little too much. So today i focused on...

Listening...and this is what I heard...

The ticking of my clock at 4:23 a.m.

Elijah asking for appa (apple) juice when he woke up.

A sermon on the high cost of following Christ.

the sound of the water running as i washed the dishes.

kids playing outside our living room window. 

Cars driving down the road.
Crying.
The ups man ringing our door bell.


V clapping her hands.
our bedroom fan.
Jeremiah telling me that God is my refuge.
{jeremiah 17:17}
V sucking on her bottle while I put her down for her nap.


when i die young, by the band perry.


Elijah saying, "no no" and than saying sorry mama. 


vanessa giggling at elijah making funny faces.


Michael saying good-bye.


my kitchen timer going off.


Elijah singing to V.


Vanessa talking to her doll instead of sleeping. 


and the best sound goes to...
the door opening and Caleb coming home...(for good)


James 1:19 
"let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger."
