Musings From A Musical Mind


Yesterday Greg and I were standing in Lowe’s looking for patio cushions for the bench and chairs on our deck.  Most of them were pretty ugly and only 2 varieties for a ‘bench’ – one an icky orange and the other a disgusting green color.  While I was contemplating – the fire alarm went off.  It was SO LOUD!  What’s the deal with those, anyway??  And of course – they wouldn’t turn it off – no – you HAVE to wait for the fire department to come or something like that – so I’m standing in the middle of the aisle with my fingers in my ears saying, “won’t SOMEBODY turn that NOISE OFF!!”

Our world can be just as noisy.  We want to yell and scream, “TURN OFF THAT NOISE” to anyone who will listen – or to nobody at all.  With all the ‘voices’ in our head that compete for our time and attention – it is sometimes hard to turn them down – or off – and just have quiet.

I want to have a life of peace and quiet – I think we all do.  We get used to a certain stress level and after a while it seems ‘normal’ to us.  I want to get away – unplug and unwind – leave all the worries and stress behind – yes – run away from home sometimes.  But we can’t do that – so we deal with it.

My quiet and peace – is a choice. It always is.  I can stir up drama in my every day activities – some people thrive on chaos, noise and drama – I do not.  I have to step away from those who live there – and cannot – or will not separate themselves from it.  It has become who they are – their very identity. But it is always a choice to live peacefully – in our own minds – and not surrender to the ‘voices’ that bring noise and confusion.

Help me Lord – to hear your voice as I surrender to the peace and quiet in my mind.  Help me to still the loud noises in my head as they threaten to overtake my world.  I want to be renewed daily by your still soft voice – gently leading me from my noisy world into a world of great silence and rest.

I am praying for you today.

God Bless

  1. Embrace age, Cindy. We are that old. We are standing on the bridge between what our parents were and our grandparents became. Anyway, I like the voices in my head. They are the only ones I can agree with anymore! LOL

    • Sounds like ’embrace the pain’. So stinking similar – what’s up with that? I don’t want to embrace growing older – I intend to fight it every step of the way!!! But I DID have a hard time going to my work out today – Greg practically had to drag me. Ugh. Voices in your head you say? That explains SO much. ☺

  2. Oh I know what you mean. The older I get the more I feel distracted by smaller things. My body is going through great changes right now and any amount of chaos on the outside just overwhelms me as there is too much changing on the inside. lol
