Living life without deepening an appreciation of the Creator who gave you life is like having a beautiful coloring book and carrying it around all your life, yet you have no crayons to color with and so you cannot truly see what an awesome gift you are toting from place to place. Denying our creation story and cutting ourselves off from the
flow of our Creator is like having a large chest filled with magic and wonder that we carry everywhere but have never opened; we have not honored where it came from enough to even be motivated to find the key. The key to an energized life is the ability to understand with deep honor and reverence both our earthly story and our sacred story. As I look back, I see that God and I have been connected for a very long time.
