I intend to spend this day with all the curiosity and imagination that God gave me.
On this day I will practice LISTENING. I will really listen to birds and clocks and traffic and boiling pots. Most of all I will quiet my mind and really listen to people – what they say and how they say it. I will not judge or rebut; I will be curious and respectful.
I intend to spend this day with God.
James 1:19 (NRSV)
You must understand this, my beloved: let everyone be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger;
I intend to share my joy.
How will I share this day?
Record my feelings about today in a memo app and listen to it?
Listen to others who have tried this Intention?
Listen to people telling their own stories on Story Corps?
Share on Facebook?
