On Celebrities, Cyclones and Siamese

I was at the hairdresser today and I overheard a trainee hairdresser talking to a customer. She was obvioulsy using some reflective listening skills she had learnt at college, and was sounding over-interested in a lady talking about another lady who stole her idea of breeding short-haired siamese cats.

The lady on the other side of me was talking about the impending cyclone hanging just off the coast and then they both joined in a conversation about going to heaven and elvis being there.

This was one I chose not to enter in to. But in hindsight, since we were talking about these opportunities, maybe I could've said something. Any suggestions?

That was both scared and sad and hilarious.

Hmmm? I'm stumped. I think I'd pray a quick "HELP" and see what happened next.

The hair salon. Always interesting.

Now, you've been tagged. And I'm not sure if I should say "you're welcome" or "sorry".

It's really fun so give it a try!

I stumbled upon your blog today and was blessed by your candidness and use of the Scripture. May God bless you and your family! You might be interested in a book that my husband recently published for Christians. He has a passion for teaching Christians to listen with their hearts (reflective listening) and thus demonstrate the compassion of Christ toward others. It's called "Please Listen to Me! A Christian's Guide to Reflective Listening." It can be found at many online stores such as amazon, barnes & noble, christianbook.com, and WinePressBooks.com. Many of them ship overseas from the U.S. The author's name is Dick Fetzer. God bless!
