40 days

You will know the truth and the truth shall set you free – I was reminded of these words yesterday, words I had learnt many years ago. I am not religious, but these words of Jesus really touch me deeply.

And as a child I actually had a good relationship with Jesus, I thought he was kinda cool – but not in a religious way.

I am not against religion, people can believe in whatever they want to and I have much respect for Jesus who was for me a man of honour. He was an expression of unconditional love and kindness. He lived and breathed those qualities, they were very much a part of him. And I think that’s wonderful.
So those opening words have obviously been with me for a long time – familiar and something I aspire to everyday, to find the truth within me, my truth…
And you’re probably wondering about the 40 days – another reminder of another story!
The story of the great flood. It rained for 40 days and 40 nights. And there are 40 days left in the year and so 40 more rocks to paint. So 40 more opportunities (for this year anyway) to share my stories with the world!
Arohanui,
Jo x
