Have you ever noticed that when you are in a hurry everything seems to go wrong. You catch every traffic light, the person in front of you in line needs a price check, the shirt you want to wear is missing a button, and so on. It is in these hectic moments that I sometimes find myself thinking, I wonder if God is trying to tell me something. There is a saying that I have seen a lot of lately and it is a quote by Stephen Covey, "Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply." As I was experiencing my variety of set-backs today this saying popped into my mind and I thought, I wonder what God is trying to tell me today. Perhaps I should be listening to all that is happening with the intent to understand what my purpose is for this day. Not racing around wondering why God is putting so many obstacles in my way. It is difficult to adapt to this way of thinking because it is not in my nature to slow down and think about the bigger picture. However, on the days that I do I find that I have a sense of peace and understanding that makes for less hectic moments.

A bit about me:
I am who I am thanks to God, my parents, my family, and my friends. My life is driven by faith. Oh, and I am a cancer survivor.
