Have you noticed?
When your path is so dark, and you are trying, so desparately, to find beauty, because you know it will help, finally, one moment stands out in your day? A flower unlooked for, a cloud lit from behind, the sudden smile from a stranger, or the loving embrace of a child. Then, as you hold on to that one moment, suddenly, another moment of beauty occurs? Where you looking for it? Did it just happen? Beauty is all around us. Once you start looking, truly seeking beauty, you will find that moments of beauty, will start to appear, at just the right times. Where you looking?
A friend of mine was concerned about how some of the heartaches, I had experienced in my life, had affected me. I told her, that the good Lord had already been helping me to heal, for many years, in the most profound ways. He still is! The Lord designed us, so that we can heal. Every time we are hurt, every time we go through hardship, even when we are suffering, it is always difficult, but we can find health. As we seek health, and the body is always longing to seek health, we learn. We just need to help the body, with our mind, and soul, in finding the right path, for healing.
But it is not just the Body, that can heal, and needs to heal, from all of the hurts, that this world provides. The Mind, and the Soul, can also heal! I know! I have been on that Journey, the Path of Healing, for the Mind, the Body, and the Soul, for a long time.
Even now, the good Lord is providing a new way, for me to stay, on that Path of Healing. A way, that I had not realized was so close to my heart, until today. A way for me to continue to heal, Mind, Body, and Soul, that will draw me closer to my Lord, which is always where true healing comes from.
I am going to have a garden! A beautiful fall Garden!
My wonderful Landlord, Gary, wants me to use at least 50 gallons of water a day, to be sure that his well does not silt up. For somebody, who is used to being limited to about 15 Gallons a week, that seems like a terrible waste of water! When I told my friend, Tom, that? He said I should throw a bunch of seeds on the ground, and see what happens! My gardening friends, Jean, and Amy, have organic seeds, that they are going to give to me!
I am going to have a garden! It has been so long, since I have been able to have a garden. It looks like I may even have enough money, from peoples gifts, to buy some wire fencing. I even have some pieces of a Saguaro cactus skeleton, that my landlord gave me, to help keep those pesky javelinas, and adorable, but ravenous, bunny rabbits, out of my, soon to be beautiful, organic garden!
A bare piece of land…
… becoming a beautiful Garden!
I am so happy, I can hardly stand myself! Tears of Joy, flowing down my face!
I am so blessed!
