They also remind me of how quickly time can pass us by. Within a few days, the pedals of a flower grow limp and eventually fall away.
In 2007 the old adage, stop and smell the roses, truly resonated in my heart. My life was routine. Day after day, I busily did the same things, the same way. Included in my routine was wondering if today would be the day I would meet my Boaz.
Busy, busy, busy…. too busy to change…. too busy to stop and see what other gifts God had in store for me. There was no time for smelling flowers, I was busy with worry…busy, busy, busy.
Like a flower, each new day has a unique beauty that is unlike any other day. A day of living is worth appreciation and admiration. As life’s pedals unfold, you never know what blessings will bloom.
Life changing adventures, once in a lifetime accomplishments, and just plain old fun times, bid you to come and enjoy.
Are you able to find joy in the treasures of everyday life? Have there been doors of opportunities or challenges opened just for you? What is standing in the way of you and loving the life you live?
I encourage you today to think of your days, the ones that have gone, and the ones that have yet to come. Will you be too busy with sorrow to try something new? Will you be too busy to laugh… too busy to smile?
Arise in each new day with a heart of expectation and appreciation. Let the flowers of life bring a smile to your face and hope to your heart.
He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not. Job 14:2
