This Present Day




Today I am reposting a blog writing from several years ago....it came across my memories of this day on facebook and as I read it, ...well, I hope you are touched by my words.....

From 4 years ago...........


As I stepped into my yard this morning, this is what I saw....it almost takes my breath away  when I see my yard every day...I am so thankful for this gift from God..it is a dream come true..to have a garden for a yard.  and I love to share it with you....so.....



Let's take a closer look at the things growing here. I hope you enjoy..I know that there is no way I could have done this without Divine intervention in my life..there is a purpose for this place we call Winterpast and we intend to fulfill it...it has become a well watered garden in the midst of a drought and even though it was a pitiful sight when we bought this place 8 years ago...I am a very thankful woman..

 this place we live is indeed a case of being in the right place at the right time...this is the time in my life I am supposed to be living on this land growing this garden and most of all ENJOYING it..  there is nothing else that can touch knowing that you are in the place where you are supposed to be, doing the things that you are meant to be doing....that, my friends, is contentment.....

Each of us has a purpose and we will never be satisfied or content until we find the place where we are suppose to be in this life..  Getting to know God and letting Him direct our path is the ONLY way to live a fulfilling life...I do not want to get to the end of my life and say I wish I had lived differently..and I don't want anybody else to experience that either...what a wonderful world this would be if we each found our place and lived our life there...and let everybody else alone....we will be like a grand symphony if we each play our own part...I will let you in on a little secret..when you are NOT living your intended life, you are like a musical instrument that is out of tune...everyone else knows it..and can hear it...so it is so worth pursuing the life and purpose that is tailor made for you...then we will all play and sing in tune with one another.
.
As we looked at these pictures, we focused on individual flowers and things in the garden.. but they all come together to make a big picture..each is beautiful in it's own right but as a whole, it is breathtaking....so, if you are a zinnia, BE A ZINNIA..if you are a bee, be a BEE...if you are a bean, BE A BEAN...

BE WHO YOU ARE MADE TO BE!!!!!!   BE BE BE......what are you meant to be?????answer that question and your life will never be the same..it will be worth it all....

thank you for reading along...and visiting my garden.....see you soon...

  2. This post resonates with me because I continue to seek what I'm supposed to be. It's not always easy to figure out. I'm glad you found your place, and that it's such a wonderful one! May you continue to be blessed!
