A Hodgepodge Welcome Post

Welcome to all who stop by today from the Proverbs 31 devotion! I am getting packed and ready this morning to head out for a retreat this weekend with the ladies from Eutawville (SC) First Baptist Church in Valle Crucis, NC! We are anticipating a lovely weekend enjoying the beautiful NC mountains in the fall and hearing from God as we come away with Him, quieting the noises in our life and tuning our ears to hear His voice.

My devotion today was about all those little noises in our day-- and the purposes they can serve if we learn to pay attention. What is a little noise you are hearing in your life today? For me it is the noises of my teenagers-- they need my attention and my help with school. They seem grown up and capable-- so much so that I forget that they aren't grown and they aren't capable. My job as mom is far from over where they are concerned!

Finally, I got the nicest comment from one of the winners of my ebook giveaway and had to share it here:

"I quickly glanced through all the pages already. I can't wait to print them all out and start highlighting. I had better get a new highlighter because it looks like I'm going to be using it alot. I would encourage everyone to purchase this e-book they will definitely not regret it."

Thanks so much Angela! If you would like to buy a copy, just click on this link to take you to a secure ordering site. You will have your copy in a matter of minutes! Thanks to all who order! My family appreciates your support!

Hi Marybeth~

I loved your devotion today. The word that has been on my heart the last few days is "be alert".....I guess I need to add to that "be sensitive"...."listen"........

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful advice.

Many blessings,

Marybeth, your devotion today was so full of wisdom and encouragement to pay attention to the noises. Great piece!

Your devotion 2day was so on time! This past May, I was blindsided by the ending of a beautiful relationship, but as I have looked back and tried to re-evaluate the situation, it is clear that there were some small noises, and I know that when God reconciles, I will always listen for the small voices. Thanks for your wisdom and obedience to the Holy Spirit.

I hope you have lots of fun at the retreat this weekend - hearing from the Lord, having fellowship with the other ladies - and enjoying the mountains!

I think the noises can be our children looking for our attention, we get so busy we forget. Yesterday, it was the simple thing on needing help and everybody too busy to help.

A simple hug and an eye level answer...
