All the head things! LOL!

As I write today, I'm wondering if it's better to write a hard copy?  For most of my life I have kept a hard copy journal of my life.  At the beginning of this year I started doing both but this seems to be the one winning out lately.  But I miss the pen and paper journal.  I don't think I'm really good at writing about my life, maybe it's because I'm not good at the details.  Maybe it's because I get caught in what the weather is doing. I wonder why I get caught up in the weather, Maybe it's because the weather is always changing and there is a part of me that misses the constant change that my life used to be.  I think that my life still changes, but not because of me moving or getting a new house mate. Because life does change, but I am aware, that Ecclesiastes is more relevant in my life than it has ever has been, it seems that I have come to the age where I am aware of the statement the writer makes when they says there is nothing new under the sun! 

Though, in my life time it seems there have been a great many changes, at least in regard to words and writing and reading and books, and not only that but the way we buy and sell, but here is the thing, we still read and write and buy and sell, that is the part that has stayed the same. The part about those things that have changed is the way we do those things.  And so then in my life time, information has changed technology's and really that is huge because for so long it used be a certain technology/tool.  The change has been pretty drastic and continues to have very big changes on our way of life, how we do things, Jobs, and how we experience life even. 

On to the next thought, I have often thought, I wish I were motivated to do a photo journal, but I never do stuff like that. If I did what would it look like.  How and when would I do it, life happens everyday and for me it feels pretty mundane, is it worth a picture, is it even worth writing about?  I'm not sure.  At times, especially with the mundane parts of life, time goes by slowly. It is in those times, I find myself thinking about the past the future or the "if onlys".  It's in those times that I lose track of the  present moments and soon they are gone, and I think to myself what happen to the time. If I did a photo journal I could at least remember what happened in the moments of life, here is the kicker though, to document moments with writing or photos, requires that we be present in the moment.  LOL!

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…

Today’s news “Remain in me, and I will remain in you.” -John 15:4
When I don’t know what to say or what to do, when fear feels like it’s about to consume my body, the place I must go is to God, in his word and on my knees.  On most every day I start in His Word, in his scripture and messages for us.  “ For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow;  it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight.  Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”               -Hebrews 4:12,13
Today I spent time in Proverbs 14 I have been struggling with my own foolishness lately. Especially the way I spend my money foolishly and unwisely. I hate myself for it and I struggle with changing my actions. It is an outright battle waging within me.  I pray and cry out to God to make it easy, but even as I pray that I …

Listening and Speaking

Today’s News Just some Thursday thoughts.

Being a good listener means not just sitting quietly as the other person talks, it means actually engaging the speaker in what it is they are talking about, it means because you are listening to what they are saying,that you may have questions about what they are talking about, therefore you ask questions and you ask the speaker to expound on what they are talking about.  A good listener does not just sit with the speaker, thinking about what they will say next when the person finishes speaking.  Instead their thoughts are focused on what is being said and who is saying it.  Not only are they listening to what is being said but how it is being said, body language, and tone of what is being said.  The listener is also making a point to engage with the person who is speaking to make sure they understand what they are say is what they mean to communicate.

Being a good listener involves more than just sitting quietly while another person talks.
