I feel like God’s been trying to get my attention.  Every time I think I have things under control, something happens to show me just how untrue that is.  I’m not being superstitious here or trying to make it sound like my life is that of a puppet.  But I do think God’s been saying, “Hey, pay attention and listen up.”  And I haven’t been doing a very good job at it.

I don’t like to listen.  I like to fill the silence with friends, shows, books, whatever it takes so that I can’t hear what He’s saying.  But I don’t think that’s a good strategy.

So here’s to listening.
