He that Speaks


Meet Omar, my African Gray.  The Hebrew meaning of Omar is “he that speaks; eloquent speaker.”  African Grays are noted for their ability to quickly pick up not only the words of their owner but their voice tone as well.  They, like a child, learn to speak when they are 6 months to a year old.  And like with children you must be careful what you say often around them least you hear it repeated when you most likely desire it not to be.
Omar has indeed become “the speaker”.  When I spend time talking with him, his (my) words flow effortless from him.  However, if Omar does not hear the voice of his owner often enough only noise (sounds of his world) come out of his mouth (so to speak.)

Crazy thing how God uses things, people or even pets to teach us needed lessons.  Have you already caught my drift here?
Aren't we a lot like Omar? When we stay close to our owner (maker) we mimic his words, his heart. However if we drift too far we only make the noise of this world!

So who owns you? Are you listening and learning to sound like Him?  How I long to be an imitator of my Lord!


“You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)

“Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.”
(1 Corinthians 11:1 ESV)

  1. What do each of these replica watches sale have in common? Yeah, they are all Rolex replica watches sale, but there is something else here that Rolex is best known for; fluted bezels. The tooth like shaping on the area around the face of the rolex replica uk has a very specific purpose. Around the time I first began to notice my appreciation for watches, I also began to notice how I did not care for rolex replica sale watches. Since then, my tastes have developed and there is a lot of room for Rolex appreciation. Still, some of the models just don't do it for me. And most of those models feature a fluted bezel. The purpose of this article is to discuss what a fluted bezel is, why have one, and how they found a place on watches. Fluting is a technique taken from glass blowing and audemars piguet replica jewelry making. The idea is to have a toothed, corrugated, grooves, or channeled surface with highly polished surfaces.
