Blessings from behind.

March 15, 2017

I love to watch a new day dawn, and one particular morning, as I sat facing east, I watched as the sun kissed the tops of the trees & gradually bathed the land in warmth and light. 

It got me thinking of how many times blessings have crept up on me from behind! Not from where I was looking. Warmth & light sneaked up and blessed me...and it was beautiful. 

You know not from where your blessings will come, only that they will.

Safety in the Storm.

March 15, 2017

The wind howled all night. Not like the wolf whose lone cry pierces the silence in staggered bursts, but constant, screaming her anger on the world, ceaseless on her search for destruction.

Tiny grains of frozen rain hammered the glass, desperate to find purchase & solace from it's frenzied dance.

I lay awake, listening, warmth and comfort resting against my body, the soothing bliss of feather & cotton. And, snuggling in the crook of my arm, lay a tiny Dinker bear, soft and warm, oblivious to the raging storm rampaging across his once home, now safe.

The shell we live in.

March 15, 2017

Most humans live only for themselves, a single entity, a lone ranger. Seeking their own pleasures, satisfactions and fulfillment, building a shell around themselves and living in their own, small world. They often don't see the bigger picture!

If you step back a pace or two, and rise up a little, so you can look down on the bit of life around you, you will see many others like yourself. In many cases, you will see that they are seeking the same as you...so why not seek it together? It can be a lonely place on your own!

Make a little hole in your shell and dare to reach out and tap on someone else's shell. Knock on a few, let them know you're there. It is easier, and less lonely, to do it together.

Animals are much better at giving of themselves than humans!
