Good morning friends! Here’s a little dog wisdom to help brighten the world.
Listen, more than you speak.
Now, more than ever, it’s so important to listen, more than we speak. Hear the words found in James 1:9. Just think how relationships would change, how politics would change, how we’d change, if we would truly take this verse to heart. May God help us.
” Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry.” — James 1:9
During our daily walk, my dog paused and fixed her eyes intently ahead. For a moment, she stood there looking so regal, focused, and beautifully balanced. Something caught her attention and for a few seconds nothing else mattered. That got me thinking…
My dogs are constantly taking time to nap. Usually they curl up on the sofa or in their bed. But sometimes they zonk out in the funniest positions or places! It’s not because they’re bored. They have a zillion toys, each other, our family to interact and play with, and a large yard to run, watch squirrels and birds…
but they instinctively know when it’s time to rest, and they listen.
Are we listening to our bodies? Do we know when it’s time to rest? Or are we running ourselves ragged?
