Today I want to talk about the divine things and my gratitude for them. As Whitman says, divine things that are even more beautiful than words can tell. For the past two years I have been searching for a whole sand dollar. It may sound like an easy feat, but sporadically combing the beaches of FL, all I have ended up with are fragments of this treasure. Sometimes I think I barley appreciated the fragments as I was so focused on the whole. There was a point in my search in which I felt such disappointment because I didn't find this treasure in the way that I wanted to...that thought should've been a tip off to me. This search translates over into life...when we feel slighted that we didn't get a promotion, that a relationship ended, that a door of opportunity closed, all of these experiences wind themselves up into the tapestry of our lives. We cloak ourselves in these sorrows, in these joys....they all count because all of these fragments are us.
This image represents the journey to me...there are these beautiful fragments of life that we gaze upon along the way. Sometimes we are too focused on the end result to appreciate the wonders that show up along our path. Looking back on my search, I spent many wonderful days soaking in the sun, loving the view, and enjoying the fresh salt air. My desire was to find a whole sand dollar...and as luck would have it, I finally did. A wonder that is more beautiful than words can tell...
May you seek with all of your heart and love the process...your journey is the treasure!!
May you Sweetly Seek
