Last night, I went to bed early. As I was lying there, I had a thought... "You should get up and go work on your blog layout. Hubby's already asleep anyway."

After deleting a plug-in...I lost most of my layout, but had intended on re-installing my theme today. I went to sleep anyway, thinking I had plenty of time to work on it today since The Kindle Crew wasn't posting the Giveaway I donated until Sunday. This morning, I arose with a notification on my FB page about the new post...Jennifer posted EARLY!  I wasn't prepared for that! I had a make-shift background and my sidebar was still MIA.  Fast and Furiously I began downloading and re-installing my theme...adjusting and tweaking all the elements that weren't quite right...

Then I heard the STILL voice..."I was speaking to your heart last night.  Did you not hear?"

I DID HEAR!  I didn't recognize His voice!!!!  I thought it was just a fleeting thought...nothing to take head of!

How many times have I brushed off the Lord voice??? I pray to hear His voice. I think I'm listening...BUT I am sometimes missing it.

If I had only recognized The Shepherd's voice, it would have saved me the frantic bustle this morning!

Audrey Assad has a Christmas song called Winter Snow that is playing through my head:

Could've come like a mighty storm. With all the strength of a hurricane.

You could've come like a forest fire. With the power of heaven in Your flame.

But You came like a winter snow

Quiet and soft and slow

Falling from the sky in the night

To the earth below

You could've swept in like a tidal wave Or an ocean to ravish our hearts.

You could have come through like a roaring flood. To wipe away the things we've scarred.

(chorus)

Oh, no, Your voice wasn't in a bush burning. No, Your voice wasn't in a rushing wind.

It was still. It was small.It was hidden.

(chorus)

The blog layout, isn't that important in the Grand Scheme of Life. No one probably noticed, but myself.  I just don't want to "miss it" again!

 I pray that when He speaks to our hearts...we will recognize the prompting.
