Pagan Values Month

I've been busy with school stuff so I haven't really done much as yet about Pagan Values Month. But, I'm finally at my computer and in a blogging mood! :)

I was wondering what kind of things I should write about, and then I remembered a few years ago in an English class when we were studying old mythology. One of my classmates said "All these gods, it's crazy. How do you figure out who to pray to?" I didn't say anything at the time, but I decided to answer it now, by asking a few questions:

When your faucet is leaking, who do you go to for help? The plumber.

If you want help with selling your house, who do you go to? The real estate people.

If you want piano lessons, what do you do? You find a piano teacher.

I think you get the idea. Different deities have different specialties, so who you pray to depends on what your situation is or what you need help with.

Hmmm, I never thought about it that way. Makes sense.

It sounds reasonable, but I am afraid it is not always that easy. Well, at least if you pledged yourself to a certain god or goddess, some can be quite jealous, and you don't want their anger directed at you. (I get in trouble every time I turn to another goddess. Chicks, always the same with them... *g*.)

Hmm, I haven't had that trouble. I guess it just depends on who you work with.

Thanks for pointing this out!
