Listen

Listen —
Set aside the cell phone
Look into my eyes.

Listen —
Please remove those earbuds;
Your disregard I despise!

Listen —
Pencil in some time.
Let’s grab a cup of tea.

Listen —
Stop rushing here and there.
Please make some time for me!

Listen —
Step away from Facebook.
Let us chat awhile.

Listen —
Set aside your hectic schedule.
I miss your sunny smile!

 


My word to live by for 2018 is LISTEN.  I want to grow in the area of being an intentional listener and developing the skill of truly listening to those I encounter throughout my day to day living.  I think that if we would all set aside our electronics, make time in our busy schedules for relationships, talk/argue less, and listen more, our world would be a happier, healthier, and place to live.
