Day 23 of The Giving of Thanks.
Actually, all our five senses. Seeing. Smelling. Tasting. Touching. Hearing.
The ability to hear.
What a gift!
Whether it be the slightest of sounds like a larger than usual earring smoothly gliding over your neck, the chime of the Grandfather clock standing stately against the wall, the squeal of a two-year old that you love more than your next breath, the yelp of your Lab as you step out the door, the chirping of your phone, that special one or two sounds because it’s your Girls calling, or even a YouTube streaming a favored song.
Let me not be remiss here – I must mention spiritual hearing – hearing the Voice of GOD – sweetly, correctively, encouragingly, or declaring to our cold, afraid soul, His warmth and security.
John 10:27 (NKJV) 27 My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. source
Ecclesiastes 12:13 (AMP) 13 When all has been heard, the end of the matter is: fear God [worship Him with awe-filled reverence, knowing that He is almighty God] and keep His commandments, for this applies to every person. source
Now for a favored hearing from YouTube.
On her 12th Christmas, Baby Girl gifted me with the playing of Fur Elise on our old upright piano. This Momma cried happy tears that Christmas morning.
This is not Baby Girl’s playing but it’s still a pleasure.
