"great advice"

I remember learning in nursing school about being an "empathetic listener". This type of listener basically recites what they hear back to the person ie- ("I am so hungry I could eat a horse" then the empathetic listener would reply- "so what I have been hearing you say is that you are so hungry you could eat a horse"). SUPER annoying- I detested the psych-stuff in school (go figure, I'm a case myself). Anyway I do remember thinking that I was a terrible listener then and that I gave horrible advice. Really 9 times out of 10 I am thinking about something else when someone is talking to me.... Now I know that NONE of you ever do that do you???? Well anyway I feel like baring my soul today! Seriously friends come to me for advice & I instantly think that I can help solve their dilemmas. I do not know why I think like that, I really know the only good advice comes from the creator of life. The Bible is the complete.. how-to-do, what-should-I-do, handbook. Joey is always very quick to point out that this concept is really not so profound- but to us mere mortals it is!!!!! Want to read a great book, figure out some hum-dinger of dilemmas in your life, get a grip on your marriage, & learn the true meaning of love... READ YOUR BIBLE!!!!!!! I think there may be something to say about it being the bestseller of ALL time!!!!!!!!!!!!

nothing says lovin'

the perfect day!!!

p.s. if you haven't prayed with your family together lately- try it. Josey prays such fervent prayers that I know they are being heard in heaven. Your little ones will learn at early ages how great the power of prayer is!!!
