The sounds of nature, music, and the voices of loved ones are pleasing to my ears. There are times, though, that I need a quiet place, a place to pray and study God’s word. To begin this intimate time with Jesus, I need to be still, to quiet the thoughts in my head and to ignore the interruptions that may intrude. As I read my devotional, for the day, I contemplate what the verses mean and how they pertain to my life. Many times, the verses clearly show that God knows exactly what I need to hear. If I am really “listening”, I ask the Holy Spirit for help in the direction I need to go. In a quiet moment, I can “hear” what the Lord is telling me and respond. I “hear” his voice through scripture and in my mind . His kindness, his forgiveness, and his love are always waiting for me when I take the time to be quiet, in his presence.

I am a retired special needs teacher originally from Massachusetts, now residing in Arizona. My husband and I each have three adult children and many grandchildren and some great grandchildren. My passions are singing, single action cowboy shooting, writing and my faith in Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. I have danced and acted, on stage and in competitions, but swim aerobics is the closest I come to dance, at this stage. My husband and I travel back east, every summer, to be with our families. I adore our grandchildren and wish we lived closer to them, year round. View more posts
