Personal Blog by Rhonda Crowdis Hardisty

I am just returning from an anniversary trip with my husband for three days and two nights. I had every intention of blogging on the road. However, I ran off without my laptop cord, not to mention my wallet!! So, I tried to blog from my phone Friday morning at breakfast, but my phone kept ringing; one daughter after another checking in and asking for information that only I could provide. I gave up!! So it’s time to try again while the boys are in the bath and the girls are all out getting their nails done or visiting friends.

Start 8:35 PM

Today’s topic is Beyond. The first thing that comes to my mind is the Mercy Me song Word of God Speak which goes like this:

“I’m finding myself at a loss for words
And the funny thing is it’s okay
The last thing I need is to be heard
But to hear what You would say

Word of God speak
Would You pour down like rain
Washing my eyes to see
Your majesty
To be still and know
That You’re in this place
Please let me stay and rest
In Your holiness
Word of God speak

I’m finding myself in the midst of You
Beyond the music, beyond the noise
All that I need is to be with You
And in the quiet hear Your voice”

For me, it’s time to move beyond the music and the noise; beyond the laundry and the dishes; beyond the e-mail and the blog; beyond the dogs and the kids; beyond the job and the bills… and just HEAR HIS VOICE!

8:40 PM Stop!
