Luke 8:10

One of my goals this year is to read the whole bible. Today I was listing to my reading plan on my app and Luke 8:10 spoke to me…

“He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, “ ‘though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.’”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭8:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬

The last part got to me. Not as a religious comment about Gods word but about communication in general. People may be seeing and hearing you but you never know if they are really understanding you.

In parenting this is true when raising your kids. In education is can be the teacher student relationship and in marriage relationships it’s applicable for interacting with with your spouse.

Communication is not only what you’re saying but what people are hearing. It makes it very important to realize that what you say might not be what they are hearing.

I’m Patty Gordon, a 40+ year old school lunch lady married to a crane mechanic. Our days are anything but normal as he works “construction worker hours” and I take care of our two elementary school aged kids, Chihuahua Mr Biggs, Pitbull Cali, and French Bulldog MooMoo. I blogged a few years ago under different names but have landed with the 365MomMe.com name this time around. The term 365MomMe comes from the idea that I’m a mom and I’m me 365 days a year. Kids call me Mommy but I see myself as MomMe.
