Rowdy One talks alot....and usually when I am listening to my favorite song, or reading the best part of a book....when I am deep in conversation with someone or myself, when I want to hear every drop of the rain....or when I desperately need quiet. Rowdy One is talking.......
Normally it is some fact that I could care less about or a question I have already answered at least a million times. Demands, arguing or trying to get his point across, a point that many times makes no sense at all.
I try to listen to what I am wanting to listen to and tune him out. I try. And sometimes I do.
But sometimes I don't and out of the millions of words he speaks in a day....sometimes they are the sweetest words I have ever heard. Sometimes they are wise beyond his years. They are funny or tender or smart or helpful.
I must release what I think I should hear and listen to Him thru him.
Release my ideas of what my ears want to hear and hear what I am meant to hear.
I have missed alot doing it my way. This year I will do it His way.
Release and in turn receive.
