When I want to feel close to God, there is a particular place I go to that's very sacred to me. I love this place and I've always been able to hear amazingly well while I'm there. This past week, I went back for the first time since having my second baby. I was shocked to find that I can no longer hear clearly at this place. I guess I thought God magnified my senses while I was there and allowed me to hear so well. But that is no longer the case. I was sad for about 3 minutes. Then I was blessed with incredible perspective.

I don't ever have to "hear" God. I can feel Him. He can speak in ways that my soul understands without my ears. And I felt His presence so strongly that it didn't matter that the sounds around me were mumbled and muted. Really, all that matters is that I make the choices that will allow me to continue to feel His presence and guidance. All the rest will take care of itself. I know He loves me and is guiding me in every moment of my life. And my life is so rich because of Him.

It's going to be okay.

Today I'm.....

Crying. It doesn't look like I'll be able to get new hearing aids after all.
