Acceptance and Adversity

             We’re going to do things a little bit differently today.  Usually, the pattern is:  my message, followed by the daily draw.

            This time, the daily draw is going to illustrate my message.  (Because that’s how I was directed to set this post up.)

             We’re still talking Transition and Change, Perception and Acknowledgment.  We’re still being advised that, when we hit a rocky patch, we need to put on better shoes.

             When we break down on the side of a lonely road, we best settle in for the wait.  When our boat springs a leak, we need only keep ahold of the floating bits and  paddle to shore.

             When we arrive at a destination point, just to find it crowded and sadly disappointing of all we were hoping for, then we need to look harder for the positives.

             We have to search under every less-than-impressive feature for the treasure.

oracle cards, self-care, personal power

“Power  ~

Own your power.

Every storm brings fresh, new blessings.”

             Using the gifts that we were born with, the instincts that we have developed over lifetimes, we are being reminded that we are capable of finding those silver linings and golden promises.  We have that strength and knowledge.

             We can achieve all of this Hope because we have the Power of Life.  The Power of Love.  The immense Power of being our true selves.

Today’s Sharing:

is this view of some basil Empress has growing.

There is decoration on the glass, but mostly what you're seeing is the roots system.

            Everyone was surprised that it’s doing as well as it is.  Since we can’t keep any of the plants for long, this was a fun way to watch its life-cycle.  And ya know, also have great aromatic herb supplies on hand.

             (It looks healthier in real life, I promise.  The sun was bothering my camera so the leaves are coming out very yellow.)

Personal Note:

Happy Birthday, Bryan.  I hope your river trip is a splashing success.

  1. “We’re still being advised that, when we hit a rocky patch, we need to put on better shoes.” Nice. I like this imagery.
