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?

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.

Truth, the state of being in accord with fact or reality.

I am a facts kind of person. Emotion and feelings are really not something I deal with well. For example tonight while talking to my husband, he gets all emotional about his friend Dan, who has cancer, who I might add is doing well. My husband gets all emotional about it, as I am more practical in my response, or am I? Although I consider myself to be a loving, caring person, I am not going to worry because God is there holding Dan in palm of his hand. I have the general impression that I cannot get all crazy and emotional every time some bad or terrible happens to someone. This may be my reality, but not someone elses. Their true reality is probably very different. I may be trying to hide those bad feelings and teach myself a different truth.

I find that truth is in the reality of the teller and the receiver. There is a choice to be made in believing and going with truth, or challenging it based on our background and beliefs.

In the meantime, I will try to be more in the present to realize that, just like my husband, there are different opinions, feelings and judgements that all can be true in the eye of the beholder.
