Blooming — Where ever we are

blooming between the Wall and the Deck

Good Morning, God!

I was thinking of using photos of Sunrises or Rainbows for this morning’s blog. But it feels as if You have selected this small flower — blooming in a small crack between the concrete wall and the concrete deck at a friend’s house.

BLOOM! 

It feels like a command! GROW! EXPAND! LEARN! GIVE! A series of commands along the line of the parable about three people given money to “invest.” Two doubled their money and one, BEING AFRAID, dug a hole and buried it.

Sigh. Fear creeps in and blocks the light we need to grow. Being full of Fear is like being FULL OF EXCUSES. We tell ourselves that we were never given the right circumstances in which to flourish.

But, then, God, You show me this beautiful flower which has managed to bloom through a very small crack between a concrete wall and a concrete deck. Do I hear You saying, Well? 

Sigh. I know I have to change. I know I have to be more open and real. More willing to fail and learn. Or maybe, it’s fail – – fail – – fail – – fail – –  fail — and then learn. Certainly, while playing Angry Birds, a computer game, I had totally to disregard the Level FAILED message and focus on TRYING AGAIN.

That does take HOPE, God! . . . Hope AND Humility and stick-to-itiveness.
