The Best Presents Are Brought On The Wings Of Angels #hope #joy #love


The past few week have been particularly difficult with so many deaths, negative news topics and others memories surfacing that have underlying emotions that I forgot were there. My youngest daughter started crying for her grandmother one day making it harder for me to console her due to my emotional instability. I did manage to pull myself together proudly and not have a meltdown this time.

Then as I was taking a trash bag outside my eye focused on a green vine sprawled out on the ground in a neglected flower bed near my garage. Could it be? A cardinal or hummingbird vine growing up from a tangled mess of weeds. Yes it was! The only way this vine was growing here now was from seeds I may have spilled out back in Feb. After my mother passed away, we moved many of her household possessions and treasures from her garden to my house. One of the bird feeders spilled out in that flower bed and must have contained seeds from her cardinal vine, since it was one of her favorites.

The only other explanation I have is the seeds arrived via the wings of Angels, maybe my momma or grandma, planted to give me hope and joy for each coming day.

The vine has grown even more since this picture and the hummingbirds are enjoying its nectar now.







May hope and Joy Fill your Day.........

Letting Go Of Your "Life Stuff" or "Junk In Your Trunk"

Just how much extra junk do you have in your "life" trunk? I am not talking about those extra pounds you are always dieting to get rid of either! I am talking about the crap that we see as important in our life, that really is not! The stuff that is always holding us back and making us feel miserable or less than worthwhile. My junk causes me more stress and anxiety it seems, how about you?

We all have junk... Yes I have been learning a hard lesson that some of this junk of mine needs to go, so the true woman in me can shine. The woman that God made to glorify Him and not myself or worldly possessions.

Here is a list of some Junk In The Trunk items for anybody to pray about and begin to work on...... one at a time:

  • Need to be perfect
  • Fear and worry
  • Comparing myself to others
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Trying to do it all
  • Multitasking and getting nothing done
  • Not saying No!
  • Saving everything "just in case I might need it"
  • Actual possessions that are just clutter
  • Lack of real organization in your home
  • Not Letting others be right (spouse)
  • Not Letting others help you
  • Constant thoughts of sadness since death of a loved one (for me my mom just passed away in Feb 2014)

There are many more I am sure, but I think you are catching my drift.

Below is a wonderful list from writer / speaker Brene Brown, if you have not heard her TED talks or read any of her books I strongly encourage looking her up.

This speaks mountains to me, I pray it will touch you today also.


Be blessed today!

Next time let's talk about that list and how we can work thru it, one day at a time.
