Enjoying Everyday Wonders - The Power of Intent and Gratitude!
Seeing my smiling daughter and the Red Maple that has sprung up beneath the Azalea bush, my faith is renewed. My heart swells with appreciation and I silently give thanks to God who always hears and responds to my heartfelt desires. I am filled with gratitude and a sense of wonder! Looking out, I see ample evidence of the biology of belief and the miracle of life.
Twenty plus years ago, I prayed for a blond, blue eyed daughter; fifteen years ago, God responded to my prayers and I brought this little beauty home from Latvia. She has been a bright star in my life every day and a great reminder of the power of intent and belief.
For years I have marveled and appreciated the red leaves of fall and I have looked out my backyard window and seen primarily green and golden leaves. Beauties of nature, but the landscape was missing the red leaves that I adored. That is, until this Fall...
Last Mother's Day, my husband and youngest son, surprised me with a brand new Crape Myrtle. Much to my surprise, its leaves are now turning a bright red! Off to the left, my eye falls upon a Red Maple that has sprung up magically beneath an Azalea bush that was planted approximately 16 years ago.
My advice and expectation:
Enjoy your days and look for everyday wonders. Focus on your blessings and share your gratitude. When you share your joy, voice your intentions and express your heart felt desires, you can let them go and know that miracles will pop up, much like my Red Maple, my lovely daughter, Sandra, and my Daisies in the Fall.
I hope to hear about the everyday wonders in your life! Please share!
