What are you hearing?

I really want to hear what people are saying but do I want to listen to what is being communicated? Value is given to the person talking when the person they are talking to takes the time to stop and give their full attention. Change happens!

Puzzles

Puzzles can be frustrating and satisfying all in the same timeframe. They seem such an “old school” way of passing time, but when looked at as a social matter, conversations, and fellowships can come from coming together to solve a puzzle.

Storms Brewing

Storms come and go. We look for them, we read about them, and we use what they give us for our benefit. The same can be said for the storms in our lives. Christ is with us in these storms, we just have to chose to use what He gives, to help us endure.

It’s the Little Things

It’s in the little things that joy abounds. I recently sat down with a friend. We had good food, good conversation and without her knowing it she humbled and convicted me. It was what I needed and it helped me to see that my view needed more joy.

Simple

The New Year is here, why not try for the simple. Love your neighbor as yourself. Enjoy simple. We love to complicate the simple but it’s better to simplify the complicated. You need rest, then rest. You need love, then give love.

What is Beautiful?

Beauty is all around us. It can be in the words we read, the people we are around and even the environments we are in. When we take the time to notice what we have it makes the world around us brighter.

The Needs of the Season

What wants of the season override the needs of the season? Are you finding your peace, and silence that give you the joy and strength needed to get through the seasons you are in? What you fill yourself up with will be what shows when life shakes you.

Worship

We were made to worship. When our church had a worship night it was the perfect time to go and worship the only person that should be worshiped Jesus Christ. As we all get ready for the Christmas season we should make sure we understand the reason

The Reason of the Season

What’s your reason for Christmas? Is it the gift giving or the decorating? What about the worshipping using what we have right now to give. This could be time, money, or even our hearts. Christmas is so much more than the gifts, and the lights.

So Thankful!

Storms will happen and life is hard. We need to be able to find what we can control and leave the rest to pass just like the storm. Being thankful and grateful for what we do have helps in making this easier
