Big Ears

“My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, for man’s anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.” James 1:19 NIV

“for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if you hear his voice,” Psalm 95:7 NIV

“Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.”
Psalms 143:8 KJV


**The Elephant Ears featured above are on display at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.

  1. Wonderful – the photo, the post and the comments! Paul, I see that hand, too! Heather, I knew that, but totally forgot. Thanks for the reminder. Merryn, I see and learn from God best when I am in nature. Sherri – love the sunglasses! You made me smile! ๐Ÿ˜€ I am SO blessed. โค


    1. Lilka thank you for the follow and for visiting my blog. My prayer is what you find there will be a blessing to you on your journey.
      Love Big Ears, great scripture and elephant ears are my favorite outside plant. Beautiful pictures!!!


      1. Thank you!

        Glad you enjoyed the photos. I consider it my “phototherapy.” God really talks to me when I immerse myself in all His beauty! I look forward to reading more on your site. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. I used to teach my students that “listen” and “silent” have the same letters. We can’t listen to Him unless we are silent and still.

    My new prayer: Lord increase the size of my ears so I can better hear You!

    Thanks for this, Lilka. Have a blessed weekend.


  3. And how important it is to really listen in this noisy world of ours, no matter how large our ears are! Love the elephant ears. Have a great weekend my friend ๐Ÿ˜Ž


  4. I was pondering the big ears – and maybe pondered too long. I see an extended hand of welcome on the left hand side: “come … listen … with me … today … right now … it’s easy …”
