What does His voice sound like?

Morning dawns and the mist lingers in the garden. A cool breeze stirs the leaves and dances through the misty stillness, the first rays of sunshine play in the dew drops like millions of tiny mirrors reflecting the beauty of the garden. There is no noise except the rustling of the wind through the trees. Only the beating of my heart and the sound of pages turning in my book break the tranquil hush of the morning.

I breathe in the cool morning air and let the breeze dance through the strands of my hair as I contemplate words on a page,

"Then the man and wife heard the sound of the Lord God as he was walking in the garden in the cool of the day,"

Something holds me here, breathless on this quiet morning. The words almost flashes neon off the page, All other words fade from view as this one climbs from the page. 'Sound'. Sound of the Lord...

What sound does the Lord make as He walks through that perfect place?

What sound would He make? Strong's concordance says the word is Qowl and it means voice, a sound, noise, thunder.

I sit and ponder this noise- this voice. Is it soft and gentle?  Is it mighty and low like the rumbling of thunder from a distant storm. Does it shake the dew from the flowers petals; or is it like a morning breeze whispering through the trees?

Where is my heart today? Am I in a place where I rush to that voice like I do when my earthly father enters the door in the evening after work or do I run and hide at the sound of his arrival

Create in me a clean heart O Lord.
Perhaps it was a day like today... a morning like this quiet and pregnant with expectation. Even the birds seem to be holding there breath waiting, There it is, the sun peeks over the horizon in brilliant array, There in the distance you hear Him, He is coming to share this beautiful moment with you, in the cool of the day, Can you hear his voice calling you? He knows us by name.

Are you ready to answer His call? Like a bride when she hears her true love calling.

Father forgive me for anything that is hindering me from being excited at hearing your foot steps. Forgive me for those things that might make me ashamed as I hear you calling me by name. Restore me Lord with a clean heart. That I might enjoy knowing that you will come for me in the cool of the day.


  1. Beautiful imagery! I am always ready to hear his call!

  2. Such a great thought that God hears us! I am so glad that He does! Stopping by from Reflect. I'd love for you to come by and link up. Http://

  4. Good evening, Rosevine Cottage Girls!!!!

    Thank you so much for linking up with us! We're so pleased you joined us this week.

    You have probably already completed this, but I was out yesterday and am playing catch-up. I’m dropping in to #TheocentricThursday participants this week and leaving links to who they are supposed to comment on this week to make sure everyone understands how it works. It works best for the hosts record-keeping if everyone clicks the links on the actual blog hop, but when it comes right down to it, we’re more concerned with everyone receiving at least two comments per week!

    The two posts you should have left comments on are:


    You are not limited to those two! Some participants manage to make it through all of them each week. However, those are the two expecting your comments and your first step to eligibility for this week's Featured Post spot! Please let me know if you have any questions!

  5. So beautifully written! I always love that bit of Scripture where the voice of God is a whisper instead of a mighty storm.

  6. "Where is my heart today? Am I in a place where I rush to that voice like I do when my earthly father enters the door in the evening after work or do I run and hide at the sound of his arrival"

    I love this. I often forget that my heavenly father wants to be just that--a father. Thank you for the encouragement to open my heart to running towards the father.

  7. What a beautiful picture of God's call. Thanks.

One Ocean Sea World Show

Last year we had the wonderful opportunity to visit Sea World, for the first time in many years. As always it wasn't a letdown!

While there we decided to watch the One Ocean show, dad wanted to sit in the splash zone- we out voted him. Somehow gallons of water in the middle of January and cameras don't seem to go well together.

This show was fun, upbeat and if you happen to sit in the splash zone- wet! These creatures are amazing up close!

It made me wish we had more time to spend here.

They are such amazing creatures.  So huge and powerful - so beautiful.

Every time I see them and makes me love the creatures of the ocean more and more.

Time for a snack. I could use one too, just not raw fish!

Dolphin Show At Sea World

Sea World has to be one of my favorite places! I love how magical it is, like being a kid... anything could happen. I've been here twice in my life, once for my second birthday and the second time for an early birthday present for my 18th birthday. I have to say, it's a great birthday present.

This show was amazing! I absolutely love dolphins so this was spectacular!

This show is so fun, and probably my favorite of all the ones Sea World offers.

I always liked dolphins but I really fell in love with them after Sea World. They taught me a lot about marine life and made me passionate about them.

They are creative and smart and love to have fun.

I could not believe their agility and their relationship with one another.

It made me want to study more about them, which is a good thing!


Look at that adorable face.  Such an amazing animal!

Such strength.  I had no idea they could jump so high or flip like this before going.

I love this one, it l…

SeaWorld | California Trip Day 5

Darling it's better, down where it's wetter, under the sea. Admit it. You heard Sebastian from little mermaid's voice in your head didn't you?

Today we are heading to SeaWorld!

The last time we were here was for my second birthday.

There aren't a lot of people here because it rained this morning. I feel a lot better this morning.

But I can't smell anything. Grrrrrr! This darn cold morphs into something else everyday! We are just a skip from the beach, Mrs. Cottage and Brianna keep saying it smells wonderful. I can't smell anything so I don't know, but I can taste it! That's better than nothing I guess.

By the way, those cleaner fish in the picture up above were awesome! Seriously I want some!

There are so many amazing creatures here! Some I wouldn't want to meet in the wild, though. Some of the fish were absolutely stunning!

This pretty bird just was hanging out watching us as we said hello to the sea lions.  He didn't mind getting close en…
