Me: Lord, I feel like no one hears me when I speak. I have so many wonderful things I want to share with those I love, especially with my children. I feel so ignored.
Lord: Stop talking. Let your actions speak for you. Remember what I told the first disciples, let your light shine before others, so that they may see me in your actions. The point is to reflect my love in all you do.* Your children will learn more from you actions than your words.
Me: Dear Lord, help me to remember who is watching me. Put the right words in my mouth at the right time.
(*Matthew 5:16, paraphrased.)
