Moo and I set out to walk today….and immediately, he started talking…and talking…..and talking lol….anyway, after a while, I explain to him that there is value in silence,that when someone does so much talking, there is no room for anyone else to talk or for the person talking to do any listening. I also explained to him that God often speaks to us when we are silent and listening for His instruction….Moo took all of that in…..and then asked me the following question: “Well ma, if I can hear God talking to me, does that make me schizophrenic?” So that turned into a discussion regarding the difference between hearing from God and an organic brain disorder…as my friend Mel B told me, Moo is truly an enigma wrapped in a conundrum!!!
