Daily Devo....laundry room talks

Some of the best conversations I've ever had with a friend happened in the Laundry room. It was here that we would fold laundry and solve the world problems. Talking about her kids, my kids and how we both needed to write a book about the insanity of life.

Nothing ever really got solved in the laundry room during our talks except that for a few moments, everything was shut out except for what was important for two friends to talk about that day.
Laundry talk doesn't happen much these days because we are all AWOL most of the time.

Technology and smart phones keep us from going to the laundry room for conversations. Most of us aren't even present at the table, at our kids concerts or at the movies, let alone the laundry room!
Take a look around next time you are at a restaurant and see just how many people have checked out of the conversation and have their head in their phone checking facebook or IG.

If we are not present in our conversations with our friends, how in tuned are we with our Father?
93% of communication is based upon nonverbal body language, which tells me that talking and listening just isn't enough. We must be present in mind, body and soul.

"Be attentive to My wisdom, incline your ear to My understanding." -Proverbs 5:1

Put the distractions away and discover some laundry room talks with God -just Him and you against the world.
