Who is this pink eyed girl? The youngest of our five sat on my knee and said her name. She is almost 18 months and every day is amazing us with something new. Language is an amazing thing. Communication is complex….these small people seem to know so much and can say so much with their “developing” language, noises and body gestures.

It makes me realise how often we fail to communicate, to listen well, because we limit ourselves to words and don’t “read” another’s body language or tone of voice.

Communication is the key to success…in our marriage, family, business, workplace, school and church.

Thankfully our God is a God of communication. As C. S. Lewis says:

God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world
