So most of last week I was thinking about listening and what I wanted to talk to you about in terms of listening and to be honest I was not sure what I wanted to write about. I had been working on more actively listening to others, listening to my body, listening to the sounds around me and was feeling pretty good about how well I was listening to the Universe. Then it hit me, you were listening to me. So I want to thank you for listening to my prayers and the meditations of my heart.
I always tell you talk to me like I am five. Make it plain. Make it simple. Make it clear. I need answers that are so visible that it is unmistakable. So here I am praying about whether I should be thinking and working on repromoting to Director status with Pampered Chef. I wanted to make sure this was what I was supposed to do and not just what I would like to do because of the benefits.
So I guess I did not get the first sign when somebody told me within minutes of my knowing my team was not going to requalify that they wanted to join my team. I was not listening or maybe I was but not totally trusting that this was really you giving me a sign because I had already developed a relationship with this person.
So then you hit me over the head with a 2 x 4 kind of example. Not only did you make it clear, but you verified for me over the weekend that my purpose for doing so is part of my spiritual path and ministry. So thank you.
One of my team members said to me that for me doing Pampered Chef is spiritual. It is and I am so grateful for all the people I have met in the process of doing so who I have been able to minister to. I never envisioned doing this as a form of spiritual outreach and a way of providing pastoral care to people, but you did.
So this morning I just wanted to take time to say thank you for listening to me and not only answering my prayers, but answering my prayers in a way that I am able to hear your voice and know it is you.
