Every day is good

 

Have you read Psalm 104 in the bible?  It’s a refreshing reminder to us of the truth of our daily life.  The things that we should be focused on and reminded that are blessings unto us for living this life.

My favorite verses: Psalm 104:15 and wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.

Psalm 104:18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats, and the rocks for conies.

Psalm 104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

When you take a couple steps back on your path and observe your surroundings.  Ever since I dropped my load on the floor and walked with just my back-pack (with my bible and  Clinique lip gloss), what is bought to my attention is a lot quieter, more simple, soothing and joyful.

I could walk with my cosmetic bag full of beauty products, but if I only need my lip gloss, where am I going with everything else?  When you travel, you can pack anything and everything, but when that suitcase goes on the scale, make sure your credit card is ready to load with fees for the extra, and your conscience can carry the stress of added expenses to your life.

I hope you choose walk the quieter path, it’s a lot easier.

Second chances

I bought this Cactus plant from Walmart.  It was in full bloom and seeing as I’ve never, ever had one before, I figured go for it.

There habitat is in bright spaces, but with the winter weather,  not all days are bright and sunny.

However, as soon as the warm weather came, I went for it! I placed them outside.  BIG MISTAKE that was.  I noticed after a couple of days of sunshine the leaves started to turn pink as though they were burning, so I decided to bring them back inside.

Long story short, it died… but did it?

I decided to keep the pot, as that was what attracted me to buying the cactus in the first place.  It was just sitting around on the counter for the past couple of months, until I picked it up off the fridge (as it was cleaning day) and noticed green speckles in it.

WHAT!!?!!??!?!

It was growing again???

Yes it was, growing AGAIN.

Seeing this beautiful sight, brought me to a place of recognition.

This is my second chance.

I practice prayer in the form of conversation with the Father, and the Messiah Yahushua (Jesus), and I believe my joy for this plant was acknowledged and blessed.  We don’t know as humans what we are doing everyday and our end results sometimes end up in consequence rather than conquered.  That’s just how the life cycle goes.

However, I got a second chance, to prove myself worthy to care for something as I intended to in the first place.

Do you believe in giving second chances?
