This has been a week of

God speaking to people's hearts. He doesn't speak the same things to everyone, God deals with people where they are at.
Many times, I am guilty of figuratively putting my fingers in my ears " >lalalalala<  I'm NOT listening!" When God is trying to talk to me. I don't know why this is. (Perhaps too many times of another's philosophy being heralded as the only correct one?)
God has His ways of sneaking His lessons into our everyday lives.
When friends and family members have been trying to share with me the things God is speaking to them, I just have not had open ears, or an open heart.

This week, He has been gently chiding my heart for not loving some persons as He would have me love them. Justifying to my own heart it's 'rightness' in holding some persons at arms length, when the call of God is to embrace them. In accepting that I have wronged people in this, I seek ways to change my attitude. Not for their benefit, but my own. (Rooted in selfishness. Ever the downfall of mankind.)
I have been having some bad days of missing Bill. It has been more than two years now. He would have been 33 this coming Tuesday. I still find myself reaching for the phone to call him, or finding some little something that I know he would love...
Most days I do an admirable job of coping.
A whole new crop of babies in the family- how Bill loved babies! I am so thankful he got the opportunity to be a dad.


At work, things have finally slowed down a bit. We did have a whole lot of freight today, but I was only 1/2 hour over in getting finished. Both boys work tonight- so I have just to fix supper for Mr C.- and myself! And clean ump the kitchen.
