Flurry of Activity

I can tell its getting closer to fall. There's been a flurry of activity at my two bird feeders lately. It's to the point where I'm having to fill them both almost every day. This is the time of year when the birds begin to eat more in preparation for the long winter ahead. It brings me hope of cooler temperatures on their way, and snow ahead. Love those winter days of sitting inside, watching the snowfall and the birds congregating on the feeders. What a blessing the change of seasons are.

Communion and Communication

Sorry it's been a while since my last post. The past several weeks have been pretty intense with edits of my historical novel I've written - over 87,000 words and 335 pages. Whew! There still is more needing accomplished, but decided to take a short break from it.

My brain has been mulling over some ideas lately. Several times when I've been out with my husband I've noticed people constantly on their cell phones, or some sort of electronic devise. I can't help but feel God designed us to seek and need communication with others. I personally feel the person to person is what God had in mind. But lately people seem to be content with communication via technology. I'm not saying they are wrong or evil, but often take place of the importance of face to fave conversations.

In the midst of all this technology, I wonder whether people have become so consumed with this form of communication that they don't allow room for communion with God. To me, it's a reminder of the need to set alone some quiet time to hear God's voice. So turn off all of your electronic devices for an hour, and spend some time with your heavenly Father. He's waiting to hear from you. :)
