Listen before you speak: Take a deep breath in for 4 counts, hold for 4 counts, and breathe out for 4 counts. Continue until you can feel your body relax. Now is the perfect time to listen… What bubbles to the top for you: the chorus of a forgotten song, the face of a loved one, a glimpse of a memory? Instead of shrugging off these thoughts, embrace them instead. Ask God to reveal to you the deeper meaning. Breathe and listen.
