The details

Sometimes, I get down on myself for missing the small details of every day life, because now a days if I miss the details, I really miss important things.  I get frustrated with people who don't pay close enough attention to things! For instance,Internet pages, we get on and skim through and think we have the idea, but that isn't always the case and most of the time we end up missing the details.  I was hanging out with God and His word today along with a cup of French press coffee trying to be in the silence, because our God is in the silence and the stillness.  For some reason I was soon reading the print on the half&half  container , I buy organic dairy products, anyway, I was looking at the print and I for the first time noticed that it said it was Pasture-Raised.  I don't know why I had missed that before I have been buying this particular brand of dairy for a while.  Why do I miss small stuff like that? And why did I notice it right when I was trying not to be distracted by other things?  Then it came to me!  I miss details, I miss small important things, when I don't stop to be still with God,when I don't stop and listen to him in the silence. When we are silent,and when we listen, he shows us things we miss everyday.

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…

Being in stillness

Sometimes, I think there is something in me that needs to just be in the moment.  I think, that I am regularly the type of person that tends to think of the future, or of other places, or of times in the past, I wonder about life, and God very often, about what he is doing, or what he has done, and I think I long for what he is yet to do.  So I spend a whole lot of time in thoughts.

There are times during the week where I find myself just being still in the moment.  In those moments, I can only take in the things I can sense.  Things that I can touch and feel, smell, hear and see. It's good to be still in those moments, it's good to just practice being there because, if I don't, then more of the time I tend to be filled with anxiety.

The stillness becomes a way to recharge and renew.  To be aware of the ever present presents of the Holy Spirit.

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.
