I thought how Jesus had given me His own show of love in surprising me with that wondrous sight. I walked by this same field one wintry day before dawn and heard an unexpected huff. I had startled a deer. It was glorious to hear that small, secret sound, almost as if we held a shared pleasure in the untouched morning. Visiting my daughter once when she lived well north of the Arctic Circle in Alaska, I can still see the dark silhouettes of the caribou and hear the midnight crunch of their hooves in the snow. On another Alaskan visit, a full moon setting appeared to slide into the volcanic slope of Mount Iliamna, crowning the snow-covered peak with a halo of pink in the emerging light.
I erupted in praise to the triune God for the grandeur of creation. Traipsing down a dirt road in Minnesota, a bloom of tiny goldfinches lifted off yellow flowers growing there, looking like the petals had taken flight. Read on, Jan! What goal? I can understand the bit about forgetting what is behind. But, how do I strain toward the goal if I am not sure what the goal is? Now, let me read that again. But one thing I do: forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. Now I get it!
Heaven is the prize. And, the best news of all… Heaven is right here!
Right here where I live. Right there where you live! Let the peace of Christ rule in my heart — and let thankfulness for today and bright hope for tomorrow radiate from my life through YOU. With Him on my right hand, I will not be shaken. I was squished inside an MRI machine.
Have you ever had to go inside one of those tubes and bear the clings and clangs and knocks and noises of whistles and whines? No fun! With Him at my right hand, I was not shaken.

Practice that same kind of focused, attentive listening when you are in the company of friends and loved ones, too. Instead of listening to your inner music, and tuning them out, take your clue from the One at your right hand, and tune in fully to the conversation with your companion. He looked directly into the eyes, into the soul of His companions. He heard with His heart. God does that when we pray to Him. As if you were in an MRI tube, with no visual images to distract you, focus on what is before you. Let your mind center on the moment. Be attentive!
Be a beautiful listener.
B eautiful listening is E mpathetic listening. Listen V ividly. Be fully present. E njoy the moment. Do you admire a writer who continues to rewrite and resubmit the same story or does it irritate you?
Heck, I might have missed something the first time around, and you might have missed something. But after a couple of passes no is no. I have underlined my way through it. Oh, to be understood. Is this part of being a good editor—to hear what a writer is afraid to write? Hey we get so few chances in life. But geez, I blow it all the time. My editors, bless them, do that for me.
Being a writer is like being a person of faith — they both involve doubt. I doubt myself all the time when I write, but then I forge on ahead, like I try to do in my faith. You finally have to heed that inner voice, whether you call it your muse or the Holy Spirit. Not that it will take you to perfection but it will keep you honest.
