I read a book last summer and reread it again this summer and loved it just as much. It was touching, funny, and inspiring. One picture has stuck in my mind ever since. I blogged about it here.
Cee Cee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman said,
"From a hook by one of the windows hung a gold birdcage with its door propped open.
'Do you have a pet bird?' I asked looking around the room.
'Oh, heavens, no. I'd never cage a bird. I can't imagine a worse fate, can you? I bought this cage at a market in Peru several years ago. I hung it here and wired the door open to remind myself how delicious freedom is---financial and otherwise."
We take our freedom for granted....all kinds of freedom. Now, every time I see a birdcage in astore, I want to open the door. What a great analogy!
In the painting "Freedom" the door is wide open on the cage and the word freedom is visible on the upper right hand side of the painting. Appreciate freedom.....financial and otherwise.
