“Being Set Free”


Michelangelo said, “I saw the angel in the marble, and carved until I set him free.”

breaking free

In the circumstances of my childhood I had no control in which way the hand moved. When I become an adult the carving knife was placed in my own hands. I’d been chipped and carved into a mishmash paddy-wackily way. What could I make of what I’d become up to this point. With blinders on I tried it my way. I was able to smooth away some of the rough edges, but picked up many splinters along the way. Eventually I could hold the knife no more from the pain, and so I let it go.

It was in the letting go, that I placed the knife back in my Creators hands.

It was in the letting go, that I could heal.

It was in the letting go that He gave it back…only then He placed His hand upon mine and we began to work as One.

It was in letting go that my true self came into view.

It was in letting go that I was set free.

It was in letting go that I came to understand that the marble and carver had always been One.

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
