4 Words

I use words.  A lot.

I am a one time teacher, an author, a blogger…

A wanna be wordsmith.

I was the one student in school who raised their hand without knowing the answer because I felt bad for the teacher.

So these four words were spoken to my heart.

At an important time.

I listened.

 I pray, I ask

I wait.

With….Closed Mouth

Breathing (Guest Post from my dear friend, Laura Miles)

This is a guest post from my dear friend, Laura Miles.  Thanks for allowing me to post your meaningful words.

I’ve been focusing on breathing lately. We don’t normally see our breath. It’s something that just happens without even thinking about it. In the cold months, we actually get to see it. We are made aware of it in a different way. We actually see what comes out of our mouths because circumstances have changed around us. What was once warm, comfortable air has become cold and biting. We haven’t changed, the circumstances that we live in has. What if we could see our words that come out of our mouth? What if the visual effect were there? What if those words, that breath, were thought about and noticed? What if you could see what circumstances did to our words? What if that cold, biting circumstance made us aware of those words? What if no matter what the circumstances are, the words/breath were carefully considered? Life makes it where you can barely take a breath sometimes…BUT if we focus on the breath that we have and the words that we speak, life can be easier to handle. It can be easier on us and the ones around us. Life is hard. Life is good. Life is fleeting. Life can change in a breath.adult-beautiful-beauty-321576

Weeds

I love growing flowers in my yard and I have way too many.  You can ask my husband who helps me water.

I don’t love growing weeds.  And evidently, they do not need water.

Weeds remind me of trials, tribulations, problems, just the icky part of life that sometimes walks right in and makes itself at home.  No water needed, no fertilizer or particular soil.  

So when I saw these weeds the other day at the edge of the creek the Father reminded me of a simple truth.

Sometimes those weeds can become pretty flowers.

Sometimes those things in our lives that bring us pain, frustration, and trouble can turn into the most beautiful part of our life.

I had to stop and think about that for a minute.   

Sometimes those weeds end up being the favorite part of our yard.

And all along I thought it was just a weed.
