The Key...

I have picked up, old keys, for many years....Recently... I thought... I should put my favorite one, on a chain, and wear it.... I don't wear much jewelry...gets in the way, of work...and I wind up losing it.... but...an old key... I liked that idea... I don't know why, I like this one best.... It's not the fanciest...it's just got a little 'soul' to it... I have many others, that I have collected, that stood out, for one reason, or another...all...with a little 'soul'... I think I'm going to sell a few...let someone else, enjoy them...
I've had folks ask, since I've been wearing the old key..."is that the key, to your Heart?"...my reply..."Nope....I wear my Heart, on my sleeve...it's always open"... I wear this key...and pick them up, when they speak to me...because they are a reminder...to not get discouraged..."It may be the Last Key on the Ring, that Opens the Door"....
I read that, in my Streams, years ago... when times are tuff... I hold that key... and remember...Patience...Everything... Happens...for a Reason... when You Keep Climbing and Falling... Frantically, trying to Unlock the Door... after the last one, slammed in your face...Take a deep breath....It May Be.... the Last Key on the Ring...That Unlocks it...and...if... That Door Doesn't Open...It wasn't supposed to....Move On...
Love, to You...

Oh Amy...
When I open my 'Streams in the Desert'...I ask God, to guide me, to the message, I need to hear.... He takes me right to where, I need to be...I'm glad He touched you, and, me....
Now... I just need to figure out...where to go...or...not...oh my...Waiting...and patience... is the most difficult thing...In my Heart I know, we never Walk alone... on this Journey...
My Love to You...
