“Beneath the Layers”


It’s been said that pealing back the layers of our life is likened to pealing an onion. The deeper you go within the layers the more it makes you cry.The tears of an onion come from a chemical irritant. But the tears I’m talking about come from what the pealed layers reveal to us. Some tears come from the sadness we see, and some tears will be tears of joy. It’s not what we see on the outside that determines who we are, but what we discover after the layers are piled back. It’s getting to the center of the onion that we taste its sweetness, and in that same place we discover who we’ve always been.

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.
