Lessons From a Wildflower

"Nothing my Father and I have ever made is wasted...and the little wildflowers have a wonderful lesson to teach. They offer themselves so sweetly and confidently and willingly, even if it seems that there is no one to appreciate them. Just as though they sang a joyous  little song to themselves, that it is so happy to love, even though one is not  loved in return. "
The Shepherd in Hinds' Feet on High Places to Much Afraid

We live in a world full of blog stats and followers.
Full of critics and reviews.
Expert Opinions and Judges Panels.
Therapists and Self-help Gurus
Talk Shows and "Reality" TV.

It's gotten complicated.
Sooooo complicated.

It seems that there is more wrong with us than ever before.
More diagnosis.
We're sicker.
More medication.
We're addicted.
More information.
We're smarter.
More Fear.
We're more helpless than ever.

It's falling apart.
We're falling apart.
Love is what keeps us together.
That is what the song says isn't it?
So why aren't we loving?

Today I am taking a lesson from a wildflower.
 Grow.... the light.
..where you're planted....
....what you were made to be.

~ Love~
