The Whisper

There is a whisper that comes to us all in countless ways everyday. Sometimes it is soft and sometimes it is loud. Sometimes it echoes in our mind, sometimes it tickles our ears, but it can always be heard most clearly in our hearts no matter what form it takes.

This whisper came to me in a lot of ways today. It started out with a thump and a slurp as my beeping alarm clock inspired my beagle pup to jump on my chest and lick my face until I sat up in bed. Next it came to me with a purr and a nuzzle as my big, gray cat refused to eat her breakfast until she had gotten her morning head scratch. The whisper came down the hall with a "good morning" and a hug from my son too. Then as I went out to get the morning newspaper it came through loud and clear with a dazzling sunrise and a chorus of birdsong. Later in the day I also heard it hiding in the sweet music coming from the radio and the not so sweet sound of my own voice singing along. As I was bringing my boys home from school it came to me once more this time in the smile and wave of my friend and neighbor who lives down the hill from me.

This whisper was the gentle voice of God saying, "I love you my child", and every time I heard it I could feel my heart grow warmer and my soul shine brighter. It took me a long time to see just how much, how often, and in how many ways God whispers His love for us everyday. His love for us is everywhere, in everything, and flows through all of us as well. His love is what created the universe and His love is what can help us to become who we were meant to be.

Open your ears, eyes, mind, and heart. Listen carefully with them all, each day of your life. Hear the gentle voice of our Father telling you just how much He loves you. Then joyously say, "I love you too God and I thank you for my life." Godís love whispers on the winds of everything in this world. Let it whisper through your voice and your life as well.
