The Christian faith, especially in the Catholic Church, offers rich imagery for believers to assist in their worship. After all, God created us with five physical senses and desires us to love Him with all of our heart, soul, strength, and mind. Some images, however, fall flat for me, or are too pink-and-blue pretty. For example, I seriously doubt that Jesus had blond highlights.
Since they say that a picture is worth 1000 words, in this post I’m sharing some of my favorite images to keep me mindful of my Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus…

Although crippled by disease, I am fully alive in love. I write about the profound wonder and terrible beauty of life while living with physical disability and severe dependency. Unafraid to ask life's big questions, I was briefly an atheist and considered other religions before finding, in God's choice to intimately share our humanity, what it truly means to be fully human. A revert to the Catholic Faith, I blog weekly and have written a book called It's Good to Be Here.
