Abundance

Man jumping, words “Live in the Moment” on image

Forgetting the past

Just living in the moment

Letting God carry

You to rise above and beyond

What you might ask or think

Created to Fly

Butterfly sitting on a flower

I hear the message “It’s Time”

Yet my butterfly wings won’t fly

I want to soar, be sublime

I hear the message “It’s Time”

I want to rise in my prime

I want to circle the sky

I hear the message “It’s Time”

Yet my butterfly wings won’t fly

Triolet

Butterflies were created to fly but did you know they can’t fly if they are cold?

Butterfly Kinesiology: Keeping Warm and Staying Aloft

I can also relate this to myself, in that unless I say close to The Son, abiding in Him to receive the warmth of the Father’s love, I will not be able to stay aloft to reach my full potential and do what I was created for.

Something to think about today as I sit and watch the butterflies flutter about my yard in the summer sun.

Don’t Just Survive—Thrive!

Orange Poppy plant in bloom

Don’t just be content

To bloom where you’re planted

Thrive! Flourish! Rise!

Always be seeking to grow

Expand your territory

My little orange poppy plant is so amazing. This is the third time it’s bloomed this Spring. Every time I think it’s done, it surprises me with more blooms! It’s a Thriver!

In the Aftermath Of Winter

Rose bud

Searching for sunshine

A tiny bud pushes forth

Roses rise again

#NaPoWriMo 2019–Day 21–Off Prompt

I am glad to see my roses springing up and back to life after the hard winter we had. I lost a few plants to the cold weather but my roses all survived and are looking healthy and growing.
