Understanding Yourself

I stumbled across this lovely picture and found it to be so poignant and true.  It is a beautiful reminder that we can choose to  release our concerns with regard to how others view us.  Instead we can focus on our own growth in this journey of faith.

I believe that everything that crosses our path comes into our lives for a reason.  This small picture helped me today as it was intended to do.  I hope that you find love and hope in the message as well.

    Funny, how a simple picture can affect people different ways. For me it is peaceful, and reminds me of when I use to walk out to a cliff above the ocean, where there was a little garden. I would take all the emotional struggles and trials I was going through and mentally toss them into the sea…pray and give them to God to deal with. After doing this there was such a release that I could sit and enjoy the beauty around me. So to me this isn’t a picture of loneliness but of peace.

    Your message can bring life to someones life with your images! Like a painter what you leave in ones heart and mind will blossom from the seed you plant and bring all kinds of good things to live inside their life where their hearts lie! They will see themselves in a much clearer light! Beautiful and amazing!

    Thank you for posting. It is exactly what I needed today. And like you said above, “Everything that crosses our path comes into our lives for a reason.” That it exactly how I feel about this post.

    Exactly the reminder I needed today.
