Time for Change

Is change a decision we can control or an invitation to ride the wild, untamed? Or both?

Time for Change by JoDee Luna

I’ve been trying to wrap my head around change—what part is God-initiated and what part is human choice. There’s something deep inside that drives me to find my true north, which inspired the acrylic painting, “Time for Change.” The brooch she wears reminds me to keep searching. READ THE ENTIRE POST…
