Any paradise will do. That was a statement on a shirt I wore all throughout the 8th grade. I loved that shirt, “borrowed” from my sister’s side of the closet more times than I can remember. Little did I know the significance of that statement. Now, older and wiser, I am beginning to understand. My husband often states, “It’s all about perspective!” and I have come to embrace this notion. For me, home is and has always been my paradise. I have visited glorious places: walked the Hall of Mirrors, soaked up Hawaiian sunsets, shivered from the Nordic chill on the streets of Oslo, admired God’s tapestry in the cliffs of Lake Powell. Yet no matter where I am I appreciate the arrival home more than the journey. My paradise is with my family and friends, enjoying the perspective of times when I am surrounded by them, whether in celebration or contemplation. And so, with a welcoming spirit, I invite you to glimpse my Postcards from Paradise for 2015. Enjoy this new journey and may it positively shift your own perspective to Paradise.
