He Whispers

He Whispers

The other day I was waiting at the doctors office with my son. I decided to kill a little time by scrolling through the photos on my phone. As I looked through the pictures, many of them elicited a pause in me. I felt as if I were seeing some of them for the first time. Perhaps it’s because I didn’t take them in with my eyes. I took them in with my ears.

With each photo I could hear Him whisper…

“By the way-I love you.”

Whisper one—–A tower of pumpkins that made me smile.

Whisper two—– A box of crackers reminding me of my sweet mother-in-law.

Whisper three—–The satisfaction of completing a home project with the family.

Whisper four—–The waft of chocolate perfection when a bag of candy was opened.

Whisper five—–The youngest asking if I wanted to go for a boat ride at sunset.

Whisper six—–The quote on my daughter’s wall as I lay on her bed wondering why I get to be her friend.

Whisper seven—–The text received from the oldest who’s off at college.

Text from Matt 2

Whisper eight—–The feeling I get when this man smiles.


Pictures may be worth a thousand words but I only heard four…

“I love you Cindy.”

To be clear. God whispers to me in the hard and discouraging times too. His words are equally (if not more) powerful when life gets tough. It’s just that in recent weeks His whispers looked like, well——-
