When I travel to St Louis, Missouri there is a beautiful sight on the way. I see it every timei drive in the area and decided to take a picture this time. As I sit in the hotel tonight I think about the cross and whyI am so afraid to bare the cross that I have and carry it strongly forward on the journey. I usually do my best to set it aside, ignore it, tell myself it can’t possibly there, it is invisible, it is a fictional thing that is not real, or a hundred different excuses. Not to signify that the cross is a huge part of my life, as it is the cross of salvation, but also the cross of the saving grace that gives peace and the divine.

This cross in the middle of nowhere is a huge reminder to me who and what is in charge of my journey and who makes the plans. It is a bearer of salvation, love, suffering and joy of Divine Love and the Holy Spirit in my life. I must acknowledge this and move forward on the journey with this love and joy helping me to face suffering to assure my salvation.

What do you do to maintain peace and the divine in your life?

    Yesterday morning we woke up to a huge tree branch that was hit by lightning covering our back door patio. My husband looked out and said “Oh Mama, we have a mess. Never mind it missed the house and nearby windows by a couple of inches! The dog just stared at it all day, wondering what had happening. No one had heard it in the night. I think it happened about 10-12 midnight when the worst of the storms came through. I could not help but take pictures of it when I got home! I do not know the status of my patio set and the Statue of the Virgin Mary or the roses that lie underneath, as we could not see them under the branches. And it missed the grill sitting on the patio, a good thing with propane waiting to explode under it.

God sometimes reminds us of the size of the power and also makes us humble in knowing that we are dust without his grace and love.

Ireland Mirror 1800's in our entranceway.

     When there is a mirror, no matter how old, it may reflect what we like, or it may show things we do not want to face, or discuss. Some days are better than others when looking at the relection in the mirror, Some like to look in the mirror, while others would rather not. The important thing is to be comfortable with what you see and have the ability to see the Divine Love that is there to see and wondrously experienced as self.

I have to say that I have two extremes of my caring nature; not a good middle ground. I either smother with too much, too fast, or stifle the light, myself, and the relationship with not enough.

What do you see in the mirror, a reflection of God/the Divine. possibly nothing. Do your actions show the way for others? Do you live you life in a way to reflect the Divine and show that light to others? Is there a joy in your heart that gives life-giving love, gratitude, and laughter to all you touch? Is there a sparkle in your eyes and others of the Divine? If this is what you reflect than you will reflect in the mirror. If not there will just be a plane of glass to behold and a hollow road to lead or follow….

I would have to say the first thing I would think of is a great sense of humor. Another important endearment is comittment to a mutual relationship and ability to understand that it takes time and effort to develop a mutual friendship that is positive, healing, constructive, and uplifting. I am especially attracted to a friends eyes and expressions, as a mirror to the soul. The ability to see more than the surface and truly develop an interesting and lasting relationship that can be very satisfying and beneficial for both parties.
