In spite of everything…Peace

“Whenever we feel lost, or insane, or afraid, all we have to do is ask for His help.
The help might not come in the form we expected, or even thought we desired,
but it will come, and we will recognize it by how we feel.
In spite of everything, we will feel at peace.”

~ Marianne Williamson ~

I am walking into a time of uncertainty.
It’s exciting and terrifying all at the same time.
It’s both beautiful and wretched.
And the thought of it makes me feel free.
Possibilities are once again within reach.
Those things that I thought had withered and gone
are springing to life
and waking the potential that the future holds.
Fear can be paralyzing
fear can be liberating.
If it’s going to come regardless of circumstances,
why not use it for certain change?
Why not seize the change that awaits?
Why not relish the opportunities that are waiting just beyond
this one act of faith?
Uncertainty is capable of breeding dissension
providing the way to enlightenment.
I choose the latter.

  1. Joy, this is a quote from Richard Rohr that I thought you, as a photographer, would relate to. It is especially appropriate in your current situation. “We are all partial images slowly coming into focus, as long as we allow and filter the Light and Love of God, which longs to shine through us.”

  2. Joy~this is awesome! I totally feel the same way as we are waiting on a referral to get our daughter from Ethiopia, and with the Art of Collaboration with Sole Hope, Light Gives Heat, and Patrick Maxcy. Thanks for sharing, Brent
