Security objects are used by toddlers to relieve stress and anxiety. As adults we also look for security items in our own lives. It may be the comfort of a certain easy chair, pillow, or comfort foods that make us feel full and content.
What provides security and comfort in my life? I ponder a moment and material things just don’t seem to answer this question. I need more.
During this Lenten season I am reminded of the ultimate sacrifice Jesus made for us with his death on the cross so that we may experience the comfort and security of heaven. It doesn’t get better that that.
Psalm 46:1 ~ God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
Yes, it’s all going to be O.K…
Shout out to the wonderful custom artistry of Leon Kaiser of Kaiser Kreations hidden away near the historic Gateway to the West – Gary, South Dakota. Thank you, Kaiser Kreations! You are a gifted artist and we appreciate your talents.
This piece of metal art is 12″ X 12″ of 1/8 inch metal and will hang on our wall along with our enlarged photos from this adventure.The lines make up the scallop shell which is the symbol of the Camino de Santiago, a backpacking pilgrimage across northern Spain dating back to the Middle Ages. I asked Leon to also include three crosses to symbolize our Christian faith. The words at the bottom are the common greeting among hikers along the Camino de Santiago and means good path or good journey.
This 500 mile walking pilgrimage allows for unique life experiences while exploring history and culture and has become a personal favorite experience for us.
