Several years ago, I was preparing to have a garage sale by cleaning out the garage.  One of the furniture items that I was placing in the sale was a large chest of drawers with a large mirror attached to it.  In a sad attempt to move the mirror, I broke it.  The mirror shattered into many pieces.  One large piece fell and cut open my leg below my kneecap. Unfortunately, all of the proceeds from my garage sale went to the emergency room visit that day. 
During the time of garage sale, I was also preparing to have an art show.   Through my art, I was developing a new style expression that was truly inspired by my own spiritual healing journey, while I was working through Living Waters at First Stone Ministries.  This Christ inspired imagery was a personal pathway that enabled me to listen closely to the words of the Father and his desire for my life.  Through each painting, I grew in greater understanding of myself, and the Father’s love for me.
The imagery of the cross represents the healing that one experiences through the meditation of Christ’s death on the Cross. Isaiah 53:5 “But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on Him, and by His wounds, we are healed.”  Rather than ugly, I found the scar on my leg quite beautiful because it showed the evidence of healing in my life.   To me, the scar reflected the inward healing that I had experienced through Christ on the cross.  Because of Christ, I am able to be in full relationship with our loving Heavenly Father. 
Years later, I do not think about the scars anymore.  Instead, my life is filled with the joy that comes through Christ.   I am thankful that through Christ I am made new. Only through Christ, I have been able to truly experience freedom.  2 Corinthians 5:17 “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
