It's the middle of summer; the wax in my ears melts (figuratively).
Like sheep, my hearing is keen. Now. I hear the voice of the Good Shepherd more clearly.
What changed? Hearing helps me listen.
When I was a little girl, I played a game that required me to close my eyes and move about at the instruction of one of my friends. I avoided bumping into objects whenever I listened, really listened to the voice giving direction to me.
Sometimes another friend wanted to play a joke on me and pretended to be the voice of the speaker, the guide. It did not work - I knew the voice of the one I was to follow.
Likewise, I know the voice of Father. His voice comes in different ways and in various volumes. I continue to hear so that I may listen...
"that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice and hold fast to him..."
I enjoy growing at every stage of life. I am married to a wonderful man. We raised two amazing young adults. I am devoted to Jesus. In addition to being a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend, my life's work includes school nursing and counseling.
