Watching Wings Grow

The wings of angels are often found on the backs of the least likely people. 
                                                               ~ Eric Honeycutt
 
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
 
                                                              ~ Romans 12:2
 
She just listened.  She had suffered abuse from the same source and she just listened.  She is even tempered, fiercely independent, very knowledgeable in many subjects, incredibly efficient and practical.  She stopped what she was doing and just listened.  No judgement was passed, no sentence pronounced, and mercy was employed.  This amazing woman just listened to the woman in front of her.  What a thing to witness!
 
Today, as you go out into the world, share your mercy, your ear, your kindness.  The angel that I witnessed helped me a great deal.  You are that for so many that you don’t even know about…yet.
     Lord, bless these readers as they go about their days.  Give them the gift of mercy, kindness, and listening in the hard places.  Breathe afresh on those suffering from abuse of any kind. In the name of your precious son, Jesus.
 
     Because of Him,
     Linda
