1. Keep a journal of your listening experiences. Write the name of the listening source, the date, the time you spent listening, a short summary of what you heard, and your feelings, questions, or responses to what you heard. This will help you see if you are practicing enough to make progress.

2. Practice making…

The prayer Song#1

It's good to listen to some emotional/sentimental songs. especially those ones that make you forget your difficult moments you are going through.

Some of the songs bring back the old good memories in the past, and, they don't let you stop shedding tears of sadness, however, It's not way good to be addict to listening to the songs always, because the more you listen to them, The more you'll like downloading the new versions of the songs and make a playlist out of them later.

Guernsey Island

I have just spent a week on the Island of Guernsey. Guernsey has always been British though it is close to France, about 69 kilometers (26 miles) off the coast of Normandy. With Jersey, Guernsey is one of the main Channel Islands but, though British, it is not a member of the UE. There are lots of things I could tell you from my stay there but I would start with some news I read in "The Guernsey Press and Star."
