Freedom







This bird....(have not idea what his/her name is) was amazing flying up and then diving into the waves!


I loved it ....it made me feel so happy and relaxed. I simply watched him and then more birds join him/her. It was beautiful to see them all together. In the mean time my friends were chatting away with a couple we met. I had to leave them for a bit because this bird caught my attention so much that I needed to catch him diving and going up! It reflects my situation somehow...free... but am I really free? I am attached to many chains... I am attached to a job, to a responsibility with my home, my family, my friends. Whenever I turn around I am called aunt even by my friend´s kids and that is an awesome feeling. When my niece runs and hugs me and says I missed you...wow... I just love it.

Anyway, yes everybody has freedom and at the same time chains that attach you and don´t let you be so free.

Sometimes we are up, and sometimes we are down and sometimes we dive and land on soft land or sometimes we land on a very hard land.

The bird planned every single move that was going to do. I learned that I must start planning ahead and calculate exactly what I want to reach and where I want to land.

I am glad that you left a comment on my blog because it gave me a chance to follow you here.

These photos are lovely.But from this post, and from the one before in which you are listening to a power cd, it seems that you are at a place in your life where you are hoping for new direction.

I have been where you are many times in my own life. The best thing I ever did was to silence myself before God, spend lots of time in the Bible and, like you said in this post, wait and plan before diving like a bird into the sea.No power Cd can take the place of GOd. For a believer, HE is the power within!

I pray that He will guide you into the new phase of your journey.

We soar freely when we have JESUS in our hearts. I love your bird pictures...it reminds me of the passage in Isaiah about "soaring on eagles wings."
We will always have earthly chains that try to bind us, but our hearts are free with our Heavenly Father....I can't wait to be with HIM in heaven, one day!!
Blessings and prayers on your journey, andrea

I wonder sometimes if much of creation was put in place by God to make us think just such thoughts. The world can be such a terribly stormy place, but I often find grounding when I stop to small the roses.
