Morning Brain

Very often for a good three to four hours after I wake, my brain is quiet.  This is not an every morning acurrents, but thats how my brain works most days. I try really hard to be in the moment in the morning. Having a quiet head allows me to note the people and things around me, the weather, the smells and sounds, the temperature on my skin of the air. 

My brain is quiet and when that is the case, it helps me to listen to God through His word.  To be in a place to just put his word in my head instead of all the current cultural craziness of the moment.

Singleness Awareness day!

In the monkeys flying report today it’s February 15th , the day after Valentine’s Day, also known as singleness Awareness day. I have always been a fan of Valentine’s Day ever sense I was a little punk. I have always known it as the day that my awesome crazy mom would leave heart shaped candies and baked treats around the house to let us know how much she loved us. On that day she would also make us a valentine’s breakfast. It was always a yummy day. My mom will always be my favorite valentine. When every other single person is having a depressing day remembering that they are, “alone and unhappy,” I am most of the time content and glad to spend the 14th of February celebrating the fact that singleness is good and I’m loving it. As I write this, I am of course aware of the fact that, though I’m so great with just me, there is and always will be in me, a desire to share my life with a husband. I would like to be a wife and mother very much. And so, until that time, I will, wit…

Today’s news Voices In My Head.
Ok I’m not crazy here, but there are very three distinct voices in my mind/head on a regular basis.  Our world especially this scientific culture that I live in would say there is something wrong with my brain.  I have heard these voices very distinct voices as far back in my life as 2 years old.  My voice, God’s voice, and the one that lies, the one that says I don’t measure up.  The one that says I need this that or the other to be happy or fulfilled.  
I haven’t always understood the distinction between the voices, the reason for that is sometimes the voices sound like four at once or fifty voices blaring in my head at the top of their lungs screaming for my attenchen the loud ones are usually the lies it is in those times that it becomes very hard to distinguish the three voices.  My voice gets confused.  
Here is the thing though, and I am not writing this from a I know it all perspective, because I don’t! I am also not writing this saying that this is…

Matthew 5:37

“Simply let your 'Yes' be 'Yes,' and your 'No,' 'No'; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.”
My eyebrows dance constantly,  my eyes speak,  my mouth,  my nose,  though not a word comes from my lips,
they communicate something that is going on inside of me.  Some emotion is being expressed,  though the outside person may not know what.   It does no good to guess,  I promise!  Do not assume that you know by my expression what I’m thinking or feeling, do not try and guess what goes on inside.  Instead ask.  The outside expressions of my person are just an outside expression,  nothing more,
and with me,  a wise and good friend would have the courage to ask what is really going on inside! 
Further more, trying to guess my thoughts or feelings is hurtful to you and me.  One last note. I do my best to say what I mean or feel!!!! I DO NOT say one thing and mean another. I say what I mean to say,  anything different would not be wise.
Say what you mean!  Before you say anything, …
