|A Treasure in Time|
Wednesday, April 12, 2017
Treasures come in many forms and can mean different things to different people. When we discover our treasure—a lost picture, a rare doll, a long sought after coin, or a rock—it brings a twinkle to our eye and provides a calm blanket to our soul. Ahhhh, there it is.
[Excerpt] Cooper, C and Miller, J. Broken Body Wounded Spirit: Balancing the See-Saw of Chronic Pain, Spring Devotions edition, One Man’s Junk Is another Man’s Treasure.
“What we see depends mainly on what we look for.”
~John Lubbock, author of The Pleasures of Life
Unchained and reclaimed—photography speaks
Each day in the Broken Body Wounded Spirit: Balancing the See-Saw of Chronic Pain series Spring — Summer — Fall — Winter offers a photograph meant to inspire new ways for managing the daily challenges we face. So, it’s only befitting to encourage you to do this exercise.
· Find a favorite photo and name it. You may not remember all the events surrounding the picture, but you will capture how it made you feel.
· Write a few words about it or assign a favorite quote that reflects your sentiments.
· Share it on social media or keep it in a personal journal.
In the world of chronic pain and chronic illness, losing our ability to choose is often the tallest hurdle we face. This choice is entirely ours; we should embrace it.
Metered, measured, and meaningful, light allows me to capture my feelings in the moment. Finding the right settings is a metaphor to finding the balance I need to move forward each day.
"Adversity is only an obstacle if we fail to see opportunity."
