Talking It Over
Horse Art by Laurie Justus Pace

Thank you!

Talking it over is a good place to start. I know we all have squirrels living in our head that keep all the cages roll as they go in circles. I try repeatedly to rid myself of the squirrels. Then Hamsters moved in after I turned fifty. They don't run as fast as the squirrels but they never stop to rest either.

During the day we are faced with so many things to absorb into our minds and our lives. Our society today is basically in high gear. Between the media, the traffic, the stores, the constant congestion, we can't hear any more and that means we can't talk any more. When decisions need to be made and thoughts need to be examined the squirrels and hamsters take up their trot in our heads as we begin to justify different scenarios floating through our thoughts.

With age I have decided this is where I do get rid of the hamsters and squirrels. Stop thinking, begin with a simple prayer and then listen. God is talking to us all the time and we rarely hear him over the noise in our heads. We all have constant conversations with our selfs, our ego if you may. Begin to listen with your heart, stop and take in peaceful things around you. Remember your grandma telling you to stop and smell the roses? Learn to meditate and take yourself to a place of calm. Decisions that come from calm are good ones. Even better, decisions that come from God are blessed ones.


"The LORD called Samuel a third time, and Samuel got up and went to Eli and said, "Here I am; you called me." Then Eli realized that the LORD was calling the boy. So Eli told Samuel, "Go and lie down, and if he calls you, say, 'Speak, LORD, for your servant is listening.' " So Samuel went and lay down in his place. The LORD came and stood there, calling as at the other times, "Samuel! Samuel!" Then Samuel said, "Speak, for your servant is listening." Samuel 3:8-10
