I painted this picture last summer. My husband, Jim and I were out late walking. We passed a line of trees that were facing the moon and it looked and felt like this painting. I called it a family of trees. In the past few years I have become more senstive to nature. There is someting very special about trees.
If we want to find out who we are and what we should be doing with our lives then we have to take the time to listen to our lives. What are we drawn to? What brings us life? What are our passions? Parker J. Palmer says " Our lives should be lived from the inside out, not the outside in." Sounds like good advice to me. As the days pass, I am seeking to listen to my life in order to know my path. Peace, jeanne leigh

Many years ago concerning my faith, I thought that I had many of the answers. I lived a life where so many things appeared to be black and white. It seemed simple. All of my beliefs fit into a nice little package. A package that I held onto. It made me feel secure. Through several crises that box got blown to smithereens. I now know that what I had believed as true, which I felt brought a sense of security to me was really a false security. I have fewer answers and a great deal more questions. I no longer have a nice neat package to hold on to, but I know that God holds me. There are many gray areas. In the meantime my favorite word has become mystery.
