I am looking forward to catching fall’s beauty behind my lens and share with you what I see. This week I will be visiting hospice patients for the very first time. I remember when the word “hospice” meant so many negative things to me. Thanks to the training I have and will continue to receive at Sacred Journey Hospice, I see that the process can be amazing if we are open to it. Hospices like Sacred Journey help patients, their families and the volunteers see the beauty in the death process.

Hospices provide to the dying a beautiful transition from dying to death. I believe they were made through God’s blueprint. Fall is so beautiful and the colors are just amazing—we forget that things in nature are actually dying. All the colors are so warm and inviting even though the air around us is growing bitter and cold. Those people who serve the dying and their families do so in order to not let the bitter coldness overpower the beauty in the transition.

I have come to appreciate the awe in our landscape and I am on the cusp of embracing the beauty in those who are dying at a pace that allows us to witness the phases of living, dying and death. I appreciate Sacred Journey for picking me. Through God’s help and Sacred Journey’s training, I will be able to capture the beautiful colors in the dying process in hopes that it helps the patient’s journey to being at peace and I hope to capture the beauty of the process somehow and someway for the family.
