    Default LISTEN TO THE VOICE

    This is a strange post. But those of you who have experienced it will get it. You know...the little voice that says, take the right corner rather than the left corner when you clear the room. The one that says...don't go into that dark room quite yet. And it turns out that having ignored the voice, you would have likely perished. We can attribute it to various phenomena. The eclectic would say it was a sixth sense. The spiritual would attribute that to the Holy Spirit.

    So Shield Maiden handed me an envelope that came from the USPS. She opened it as I often do. And it contained some meds for a neighbor several miles away. Normally when the USPS misdelivers something, you put it back in the box with a note. But as I touched the envelope...and this will sound strange...I felt a sense of urgency. I don't know the neighbor and have not even been down that street before in 20 years.

    But I drove it to their door. I explained to the lady that opened the door about the misdelivery. Apparently, her husband is ill and having surgery in a few days and the meds were crucial. Today was the cutoff date for starting them prior.

    Hmmm. (Insert chills down the spine emoji here).

    Not all calls to action involve the application of violence.

    Indeed...but all calls to action involve action. Imagine if we stopped listening! I tend to think that the more you listen, the more opportunities you are given. And you know - if God listens - He will bring us "the chance to do a very special thing, unique to us and fitted to our talents".

    So listen you magnificent bastards...lest another take your spot.

    Amen to that.
    Be alert, stand firm in the faith, act like a man, be strong. Your every action must be done with love.

    My Father calls it the still small voice, and it always behooves you to listen. I have had several occasions to see the benefits of listening.

    The times I did not listen were very expensive, pain,blood, money.

    I am grateful for the times I did listen !
