Now Hear This

I've been trying to record my One Thousand Gifts (onethousandgifts.com) on my iphone app. I am pondering what it means to really live fully, every moment, every second...I think it means engaging the senses moment by moment and connecting them to the heart. It is hard to block out the noise, the "have to" moments and pay attention. 


My family and friends know that I am hard of hearing. Oh, I hear everything, I just can't understand what people are saying unless they are looking at me. Today I am focussing on the gift of hearing, hearing with "love colored glasses".

What gift did you "hear" today?

  1. I hear myself thanking God for my precious Mother & begging Him for many many more years with her.

  2. The gift of God changing me and making me into someone I could not have dreamed of being even a few years ago.Someone hurt me deeply, and instead of reacting as I normally would have,I took a deep breath and just accepted it and prayed for more love to love that person,and for my heart mind and soul to be flooded with God's love so that I can rise to being the person He created me to be. It is tough.It is a struggle, but I am better than I was, and that is huge.

  3. The first thing I heard after writing this post this morning was the air conditioner blowing in the vehicle, and the blinker indicating my turns. Grateful that they both work. Then I heard my husband sigh. So I prayed that he would have a good day at work. It's been hard on him lately. A clearing of throat over by the computers, Patsy's book cart squeaking, pages turning, keyboard clicking. Signs of life!
