Bloom Where You Are Planted...

Look For The Sunshine, Daffodils, Living from Glory To Glory Blog...

Sunshine

Why do we need sunshine?
What if the sun would grow dull and turn black?
What if we could no longer see things clearly?

The brightness as a noon day!

Sometimes when I can see and feel the darkness growing stronger;
It does grieve my heart.
Most days I refuse to look at the grim conditions and just plod on!

But there are times when we can see all too clearly what the ramifications are doing.

What happens to a society that sees everything as acceptable?
When they believe that nothing is wrong or immoral;

What is a moral issue in our day that breaks your heart?

What can I do to make where I live and abode be filled with light?
"We must flourish like a flower"

A flower can flourish in a city sidewalk, where only a crack of soil is exposed!

Our lives are very much like a flower;
We can grow in the toughest conditions;
We can bloom anywhere!
We can send out a sweet smelling fragrance!
We can be but a small fragment of beauty!
Even though a flower bloom lasts a short time;
It can bring great JOY in the moment...

When we go through a tough season of pain or drought or lack of sunshine;
We can become weak of heart;
That is why we must gird up our loins of our mind!
Be mindful of the moments, life is but a flower.
But I truly believe some of our moments will never fade away,
Or will be forgotten, if we will but keep close to our heavenly Father.
Tend the garden of your soul!
Look for a streaming light of sunshine every day!
Continue to plant seeds of love!
Repent often, and pull up those nasty weeds of doubt!
Water your garden with God's Holy Word!
Refuse to live in darkness!


We all have a choice daily!
So make it flourish like a flower.

So remind yourself often and remind those you love;
Take the little quote that has big dividends;

BLOOM WHERE YOU ARE PLANTED

Trust me, when or if the Lord decides to relocate you,
You will continue to flourish wherever He moves you!

Sending you all a big Hello and Happy Day...

  2. Oh Roxy, So much that is happening in our world today distresses and grieves my soul. I don't think I can point to just one thing. Society in general has turned it's back on God's Word and the guidelines He gave us for our lives.
    I plug away, day by day, just trying to make a little difference with those I meet.
    Blessings,
    Betsy

  3. Such an important reminder Roxy. We do need to gird up the loins of our minds to have peace in our culture which is spiraling downward.

    Yet, the Lord is on the throne and He knows what is going on, so we can continue blooming and growing in the place He has put us

    May peace fill your home and heart.

  4. Beautifully written Mrs. Roxy! "Bloom Where You are Planted". Thanks for this reminder. I need to remind myself of this often especially when I want to do nothing but run.

  5. This reminds me of the first time my husband brought home a bouquet of daffodils he picked from the side of the road on his way home from work. That memory is still fresh in my mind. We did not have much as we had a little one and money was tight, but oh what happiness is in simple things!

    May God bless you and yours, Ms. Roxy.

  7. Indeed at this time when we are contemplating the One Who gave His all for us, May we do likewise and bloom where are planted!

  8. I know very well about being relocated. It took awhile to bloom. And yes, bloom where you are planted.
