treasure lost – buried GO-LD, personally

a treasure, prized highly as valuable, rare, or costly . . .
“treasure” comes from a word meaning “hoarded” which could
show as admirable or extreme in the negative and can mean loss
of some material good(s) or relationship(s) or bellief system(s)

BUT- what if “treasure lost” could be viewed
through its impact on me . . . as G.O.-L.D.?

• material good(s)
losing this “treasure(s)” brought me to see the fleeting nature
of material good(s) and, after time spent grieving the loss,
I was less inclined to be driven by my desire to obtain and
hold onto any material good(s)

• relationship(s)
losing more than one, some deep trauma led me through
extremely difficult dark times that resulted in my realizing
I must be “whole” myself before I can be a “part” of any

• belief system(s)
losing, or rather, transitioning into and out of several belief
systems over the years, has drawn me to examine and
choose from them what is still my inner compass of Life

SO – a “treasure lost” for me brought me
to seeing “G.O.-L.D.” was what I gained from losing

About Jeanne

a work in progress . . . God's grace has brought me through many traumas of varying intensities and I am alive today (both physically & spiritually) because of Him and His work: "For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus"-Philippians 1:6. My childhood was spent living in many places in the United States due to my family's music or ministry—The Hicks Family, made up of Olan & Barbara Hicks, my younger brothers, Clint & Chuck & me, sang in different combos (put out an album), does so no longer professionally . . . but, visit a family gathering in Searcy & you're bound to hear some foot-tapping sounds (or catch my dad & mom on the road)! I believe that every moment of each life path (the good & what I perceive as the bad) God works together for my good as His child whether I understand it or not. MUSIC and MINISTRY are still primary aspects of the path God has me walking—so exciting! Words that have encouraged me since 1980: ". . . giving them a garland instead of ashes,The oil of gladness instead of mourning,The mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting So they will be called oaks of righteousness,The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:3
