Last week's storm brought some devastation to many folks in neighboring towns... These photos were taken yesterday afternoon along the road to my parents house. Thankfully, they themselves were spared the worst of it, and no one was injured, which was a miracle in itself. Many homes were destroyed, as well as the camper in one of the images below. Hundreds of trees were snapped in half or completely uprooted, power lines covered the roads and many were or are still without power. It was a pretty emotional drive, and sure does bring to mind what many have to endure in the wake of a major storm. This, my friends, is minor compared to some...
I've spent the last few days trying to clear my head and be free from the demons that lurk there.. There are issues that weigh heavily on my heart that are simply not for these pages, but I am finding my way, sifting through the fog and following instinct and trusting that I will be led to a more peaceful existence. Looking back, I see how silly my "From The Mirror" entry was, and if I am to be completely honest with myself, my physical appearance really has very little to do with how I perceive myself. I know that there is just so much more for me... More than I have been allowing in, which just continues to eat away at me day after day after long and drawn out day.
I know I'll feel better, once I am back to work and feeling productive and purpose driven once again. The Bell's continues it's journey through me, but I AM feeling some changes, and those changes have given me hope. Perhaps that in itself is the message....
Change, hope, renewal... and faith.
I know God will bring me through this and all things... And that makes my heart smile.
Thank you for listening and for sharing this journey with me. Thank you for bringing me along on yours.
Wishing you warmth and beauty ~ this day and always.
