I caught the last part of a Christmas show on Hallmark and some advice was being given to a young girl just starting out in entertainment-it sounded like something Dolly Parton would say-” It’s easy to keep a train on the tracks if it’s not moving.”
In other words… life is not stagnate and neither should we be in our lives on earth. Don’t all of us emerge from the womb kicking and screaming-a force of nature in full anger management mode?
Indignant, righteous anger-one minute we were securely nestled in our mother’s cocoon-warm, safe, fed constantly, listening to the rhythm of our mother’s heartbeat and the next we were thrown out into the cold, with blinding lights and incessant chattering noise.
Many of you read the medical findings during COVID-19-warnings actually -to get off our recliners and get moving. Sedate living can be lethal to our hearts and lungs-walk, run-get up and get moving.
Like Lewis and Clark… each of us have our own frontiers to explore, risks to be taken and new surroundings to adapt to -making each of our lives unique. God did not intend for us to settle for a sedentary lifestyle-life is one big adventure and not to be missed.
Every time I give up on a plant-most times they surprise me. I have only had one, yes one, moonflower bloom and now here, in November, with Thanksgiving just around the corner look what I discovered! Maybe the plant needed a respite this year.
We must remember … we will never know what is waiting on us just around the tracks if we never take the journey !
So until tomorrow…as Alex Elle explains so beautifully in this card..,
Today is my favorite day-Winnie the Pooh
I love stopping by this camellia garden near my neighborhood-it is my respite when life gets hard.
