Be still and listen

After a VERY long day at school one day this week, I came home more than ready to relax.  Since the weather was beautiful, Lia and I took a walk and talked about all of the beautiful sounds of nature and sights that God has given us.  We stopped to look and listen to the birds singing as we walked, so stopping me to get my attention wasn't really a big deal.  The following conversation, though, was what really caught my attention:

"Mommy, could you stop please?"
 "Ok, why?"
"Cause I hear Jesus talking."
"What's He saying?"
 "He saying He loves you,""you have to be still and listen."

With big tears in my eyes, I said, "Yes, we have to be still to hear God don't we."

He knows just what we need and when we need to hear it and it couldn't have sounded any sweeter!
