😎🐫🎤 Christ’s peace be with you. I want to share with you a picture that my Mom took on 10/13/2020. There is such great depth and coloring in this picture. For all of you jigsaw puzzle fans, wouldn’t you agree this would make a great puzzle?????
You may want to enlarge this picture to draw the full beauty, detail, and hidden treasure within this picture. Let me share with you what this picture is showing me.
This is a life. Your life, as well as mine. There are some dark veins running through at different times. Some thicker, more dominant and others barely noticeable and well hidden by the leaves. Your eyes are more times than not, first drawn to the dark spots. It’s so easy to find and focus on the dark negatives in our lives, but once you divert your negative focus, you’ll see that there is more color in our lives than there is darkness. The beauty of the colors run a spectrum from clean and crisp to a blended medley. The bright, cloudless sky is the limit, so dream big and believe that you can reach it. The Son is at the heart of it all, penetrating in and through the leaves and a Mother’s spirit is always close by. There are too many moments (leaves) in your life to be counted. Some are hidden by others, while some blend together so well that they appear to be a single moment. You will experience green growth at the same time you experience the reds, oranges, and yellows of transition and eventual sheading of that which must die in order for you to live. But make sure you view your life right side up. When you start looking at your life sideways or upside down, you may be looking at your same life, but it will have a very different look and feel about it. It could even seem like you are no longer looking at your own life. Have you ever had a moment like that? If you’re like me, you may have had a moment in your life when you looked at yourself in a mirror and realized that you didn’t even recognize the person looking back at you. Seriously, save the picture and rotate it around to see how different it looks with each turn.
Your life is a response to God’s love. Choose your response wisely and share the beauty of your colors with those God places in your life. Never stop letting Him amaze you. Bless others and be blessed.
