Thanks for sharing this...I think I need to read it again just so I can absorb it more!

I just recently talked to my kiddos about the difference between hearing and listening. Ironic that pretty much how I explained it to them is really the same as your explanation of hear/shema.

I'll be reading your lesson to them. Always nice when someone else (a neutral party) backs up Mom's words. Funny how teens/tweens are that way!


The NON-Superwoman

This post is music to my ears. I woke up with this scripture on my heart and yesterday was thinking of ways to block out the noises of life so I can hear God better. God bless you for posting this. I want to be a hearing person too!

Me, too, friend!


Great post, Joanne! Have you ever seen the "Noise" video by Rob Bell? I think you'd really like it.


I am thinking about you from Florida! Have a great time at CCPC MOPS tomorrow. I know you will be such a blessing to those women! Talk to you soon,
