Images from a box

There are revelations in an old box of photographs from over 50 years ago. These arenít like photos of today. Most of the good ones are black and white and most are 2 inches square. I look at my self. I was a boy with a shining smile and hijinx in the eyes especially when photographed with similar-aged co-conspirators. I was born. I have proof. I have pictures. I was not found under a rock. There is a certain reassurance there.

Pictures of my life are almost as rare as they were 50 years ago. Itís hard to take a picture of yourself. Images of the self are not generally taken on Kodak paper but etched on the Spirit and the Mind. We have a tendency to stop looking at ourselves, thinking were not important or donít have as much to give. We become more and more immobile based on physical, emotional and mental fat.

What would it take to find self esteem in your 50ís? The answer is obvious. You need a new picture. You wonít find one in an old box. There was no magic in there anyway, except to show you who you once were. That same child you saw gives a small hint of who you really are. You are a child of the King. We only get to a point where we know that when we can incorporate that into our identity. We just have to take that image and information about who we are and scan it into the folds of our brain.

It is said that you are always a child while your parent is alive. Guess what? You will be your Fatherís child for a good long time. He does have a will. It is for your joy and fulfillment. Why not accept what he has already given you. Your picture is more than in an old box in heaven. It is on his heart.
