"None of us will ever accomplish anything excellent or commanding except when he listens to this whisper which is heard by him alone." Ralph Waldo Emerson.
One of the guiding principles of my life (what I attempt, anyway) is to "listen to your life." The exciting times, as well as the day to day, are moments full of potential...and grace. What are we living for if not to kindly touch the lives of others, guided by that still, small Voice within? Heaven knows we fail much too often, drowning out that whisper however we can. Usually it is by accident or simply forgetting in our busy lives to pause, ask, and listen. Sometimes it is deliberate, bringing out the full force of vices (greed, intemperance, arrogance.....we all have our favorites). Yet, the Whisper is always there, if we choose to hear it. Always! - Beth Almond Ford
