Healing in Progress

Sometimes we may find ourselves lost or confused or hurting...aimlessly going throughout our life without much purpose or direction. I was feeling very much like this on Tuesday...driving around, not knowing what road I was on or even what city I was going towards...and crying a lot, feeling an overwhelming sense of sorrow. I pulled over to take in the scenic view at a rest stop. On the way to the facilities, I saw this sign above. "Healing in Progress. Please stay on the trail." See the heart shaped rock next to it? God sure is direct, but gentle...He didn't say, "Hey silly girl, what's up with you? and where to you think you're going, anyway?" He just gently reminded me that all is well and to keep on His path...that spiritual journey of knowing myself in Her image, as Her beloved of Love. God doesn't need directions...He's with us everywhere we us the signs, love, supply, creativity and encouragement we need all along the way.

Meanwhile I found out that I'd driven all the way to Flagstaff! But I don't think it was by accident or without a purpose, do you?

So the lesson for me was that being lost or without a purpose, or feeling unloved or uncreative, or feeling lack of any always the illusion. God has created each of our hearts with a unique purpose. Think of it. Your heart has a purpose. What is it?

I decided my heart's purpose is to create healing art...that's a huge leap of faith for me, but I'm going with that for now. I have no idea where that will take me...I'll just keep looking for the signs! And I found a few more that day...

Thank you for the wonderful pictures,it really touched me that you made such an interesting trip.
Here we have the film and the book "Eat,Prey,Love" from Liz Gilbert Maybe you have heard about?
Josee and Annette went to the film (and) they were impressed; I only red the book. It (seems) everyone is looking for wisdom and happiness in our own way.
Love and greetings from Klaas & Inge.

You-without purpose-ARE YOU KIDDING????? If you are serious, then I guess you do not realize what you are doing for the rest of us out here who also feel like we are wandering through life aimlessly.I took a class from you last year and had then, and have more every day, so much admiration and respect for what you are doing. You are the most giving, sharing, open, honest, and truly loving person I've seen in a long time. You project that through your incredible photography, your honesty about your feelings, your getting out there and grabbing hold of life like you do and sharing it all with us quiet ones tucked away safely (and boringly) in our homes. If you do nothing more than keep on with what you are doing, you are helping some of us more than you know.

I have started checking my email several times a day just to see if there is another post from you. Those photos are TOTALLY AMAZING!! I have felt like I'm on that trip with you--its a trip I've always wanted to make and I have not had the courage to just go do it, like you have.
