Gifts from Our Lord!

24 Mar

1-1255945936kyPsAs a young girl….and as a young adult….  As a mature person….and as a middle-aged one……

I guess for most of my life, I have wondered….”Lord?..what is my gift?…tell me what to do?….I need a talent…a gift….a path!”

Well….I think….we can choose maybe anything that makes us happy, makes us smile…and is necessary for our world.  It took me a lifetime to figure this out…and although I contributed much in trying over the years…I had no major direction.

You might say, what a waste….what a loss….she never used what she was given…..

I think…and I say….oh contrare!….God gave me love for all things….all peoples….all animals….all!  I check out much!  I enjoyed much!  I loved much!   I think I did ok!  God gave me a full palette of many colors.  And I have only touched on a few with many more to go.  This lifetime will be far too short to do it all….but I will do all that I can to enjoy, investigate, and experience…..the colors.

Maybe you are a singer….an educator…a secretary….or a doctor….but I….I am a lover of the colors of all….I am here to express how truly beautiful….it ALL is!

Maybe….anyway….I will continue…with what is on my palette…until or unless….the Lord hands me a new one.

Flowers, butterflies, and fairies….

18 Mar

It is that time of year…..Slowly the flowers and leaves poke up out of the ground…attracting the caterpillars as they hatch from their eggs.  Soon the caterpillars will eat their fill and will spin a wonderful cocoon to slowly but surely morph into butterflies.

Hidden among the butterflies….if you look closely enough….you might find the fairies….

Winged wonders of imagination that say….the last life cycle is complete….we will play, dance, sing, and flutter….until time to hide again for the winter…..beginning all over again and again….in the spring.

“Red and Yellow and Pink and Green….Purple and Orange and Blue….
You can sing a rainbow”….and just maybe….see the fairies.
