I thought I would take you on a little tour of our home this morning. We have a theme going on that means a whole lot to us but it might be overlooked if you don't know the story behind it....
I inherited this light fixture from my Grandmother Lewis' house. I carried it around in a box for 35 years and it finally found a home here at Winterpast in Winterville..it hangs over our dining room table...as you can see there is an acorn .....My Daddy was born at home under this chandelier....legacy there my friends..
and these little acorns were found in a Christmas display..I bought one and the lady then gave me the rest........a little encouragement that acorns are indeed our story.
Our house is surrounded by HUGE oak trees...Three of them..so I am reminded any time I want to pay attention, that a mighty oak tree is contained in that little seed of an acorn ....
How many times do we overlook something as small as an acorn in our life , not realizing it can become as enormous as an oak tree?
I am starting this week off pondering...at all the tiny seeds or small beginnings that are in my life...the potential to become something great is contained in these little things that I mostly overlook...I am making a choice to be more aware..to turn aside and appreciate and think about..what is there that looks really small and insignificant but will probably grow into something as large and as significant as a full grown oak tree?
We all have our own acorns...what will we do with them? hang them on the wall? put them in a bowl? make a light fixture out of them? just admire them? or will you do as I am doing today? plant them in good soil and watch them grow into something significant?
PLANT YOUR ACORNS!!!
you will be glad you did..
as always, thank you for being here..and believing in me....
