Spread Your Wings

woman, butterflies

Always
Keep looking up
Let your mind soar above
The obstacles you face below
Arise
The time has come for you
To seek new beginnings
And shake off your
Cocoon

Of Plans and Paths

Path

An unexpected crack in my plans

Puts me on a path of imperfection

I must keep myself from slipping

And with new eyes, begin again

I can’t let my plans slip away

I must now patch the imperfection

That arose and caused me to have

An unexpected crack in my plans

With new eyes I search for an answer

That will help me smooth out my plans

To keep me from a happening that

Puts me on a path of imperfection

As I avidly search to find the answer

I come upon one who offers help

He extends His strong hand, I grasp it

I must keep myself from slipping

My kind strong Helper leads me to new places

Places where I can find perfect plans

Good sound plans created just for me

And with new eyes begin again

New Year Treasure

8 Point Star table top

The New Year brings Life,

New Beginnings and Promises of Restoration and Redemption,

A Baptism in Hope, Wisdom, and Guidance for those willing to seek Him

Cherita

A couple of days ago I was blessed to find a most unique dining room table at a local thrift store.

I was in need of a new dining table and had been searching for a long time for a small dark wood table.

I was about to give up hope as every table was either the wrong size or color, therefore I decided I would just buy a table cloth for my old light colored one and look for some dark colored chairs instead.

So on a recent visit to another thrift store I found some dark colored wood chairs that I figured would be ok. They weren’t the best but they were very low priced and sturdy. I figured I could clean them up a bit and they would do me just fine with the new tablecloth.

However, while walking toward the cashier to purchase them I happened to pass by a very unique small round dark colored wood table that I hadn’t previously seen. It had an inlaid wood top with an eight point star in the middle and scallops around the edges. The legs were decorative metal in a scroll type pattern. It was such a beautiful table! Just the right size and color and perfect for me! It was priced very low too! I had found my table at last, and even better it had meaning for me, because the eight point star has many meanings in history and culture, some I found were: Redemption, Regeneration, Baptism, Life, Hope, New Beginnings, Guidance and Wisdom.

It has also been called “The Star of Melchizedek” and is the traditional pattern for winter clothing in Norway and my dad was Norwegian.

I feel this table is a blessing and though it needs a bit of refinishing , it is definitely a rare find and treasure to me!
