“Everything gets its start in necessity and must finish in liberty!” This quote by Maurice Zundel struck a beautiful chord within me. I see the image in this post as I drive into work, way away and on the back roads of the very furthest outskirts of my city. Because I can drive I get to see this quiet contrast to the busyness of my world. Because I work, I get to live in a home with my family and create with plentiful paint. It is these “must’s,” and not the “have to’s,” that allow the liberties we have in our lives to live fully, loudly, and with greater impact. If I were to only create and only see those that appreciate it, I would no longer be able to create with any appreciation of my work myself. It is the necessities in life that give us life. I need friends therefore I have support. I need to stay pain-free, therefore I am strong. I loved this quote most because it is the overflow of a grateful and free heart; free from being a victim and free from feeling burdened. I am gifted. You are gifted and so are our lives. Go live in liberty today no matter where you are in life. Today is today!
