Actions speak louder than words

I am listening. I am next to you. You have experienced it before haven’t you? Searching for guidance…you put out the call? Just hoping that somewhere the answer will appear, clearer than the clouds overhead?

I have and I do. My ‘answers, validations, and inspirations’ come from a pretty simple little book of meditations. I have had it for years. In fact I think I have passed copies on to others, it has been such a powerful messenger for me. For many, the Bible is their vehicle. Mine is this little gem.

This book is my go to conversation piece. Often while having inner struggles, seeking comfort, validation or answers, I will pull it out, randomly open it, and read. I can not tell you how many times I have found the answer I sought, right in front of me. Almost like it was an audible conversation. Uncanny, how what I was struggling with is articulately spoken about in the entry.

At this point in my life, I would really like to have an audible conversation about the goings on in our world. I don’t think I am alone in that sentiment. Seeking understanding, comprehension, wisdom. Of what and why.Next To You Lidded Jar

Then my mind goes blank. I am at a loss for words.

Actions speak louder than words.

Maybe that is the message we are supposed to hear. No more words.
Instead – be present. Put down our phones. Abandon the chatter.
And spread love. Not hateful words.


Living fully – carving a life,



Side note about this vessel.
I picked this piece randomly to post with this writing.
No coincidence there! I had named it “Next to you”. (I just looked it up!)
Our Guide, Inspiration, Creator, God, is always next to us. We just need to be quiet and listen.
