Just Bloom

July Tree on St. Kitts

July Tree on St. Kitts

This tree is blooming, and blooming beautifully.  Although it is just a tree, it is not worrying about tomorrow, or yesterday, just blooming now.  The tree of course benefits by not having a brain, and we are indeed blessed to be able to think and decide, to feel and to imagine.  All of these are great gifts from God, as we are made in His image.  But He doesn’t want us to worry…easier said than done, right?  As a mom, I tend to think ahead and try to micromanage, plan, prevent.  But is this worrying helping anything?  Absolutely not.  That’s why I love this quote by Corrie Ten Boom:

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength.”

So for this moment, I am going to try to just be, to just bloom.  Have a beautiful day!  Slainte, Lisa
