Listening


Saturday afternoon, 4:40pm

My dear brothers and sisters,
always be willing to listen
and slow to speak.
                                     James 1:19a


Friday afternoon

A single dianthus flower adorns our front path, a patch of bright colour amongst the green. Photography has a lot to do with listening, pausing and looking for beauty and wonder. It helps me hear and see God's marvellous love and creativity. In life it's so easy to be preoccupied with our own thoughts and agendas. I wonder how much we miss by speaking without truly listening, hurrying by without really looking.
